Work has started on improvements to two schools in Rainham, as part of a series of improvements being made to primary and secondary facilities in Medway.

Thames View Infant and Junior Schools, based on the same site, are part of a programme to continue during June and July.
Other schools to get improvements are All Faiths’ Childrens' Community School, Strood; Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School, Rochester; Oaklands Infant and Junior Schools, Chatham; and Napier Primary School, Gillingham. 
They join a number of schemes already breathing new life into Walderslade Primary and Lordswood School, Chatham and now Thames View Infant and Junior Schools.
Medway Council’s Director Children’s Services, Rose Collinson, said: “This investment will improve our school buildings to help raise standards as well as creating spaces that can be used and enjoyed by the whole community.
“We want to provide our schools with flexible, modern environments  for generations to come and it's exciting to see this work getting underway."
Building projects include new children’s centres, improved reception areas, extended playgrounds and extra classrooms.
A new housing strategy for Kent and Medway has called for more central government funding for transport infrastructure.
The in-depth document also called for a reduction in bureaucracy for builders and measures to help first-time buyers.
It also calls for a bottom-up approach to housing growth in the wake of the abolition of the South East Plan, with district, borough and unitary authorities working together to secure adequate investment for the county.
