St Aidan’s is a 90 year old primary school mainly serving the children in the Foggy Furze area of Hartlepool.
The outdoor area of the school has recently undergone a major refurbishment. Due to the installation of lots of bright, exciting and stimulating outdoor equipment they now find themselves with the problem of vandalism.
The school now has to spend money on fixing equipment rather than books and activities for the school children.
St Aidan’s hopes that vandalism will reduce by buying CCTV. The school asked for £5,500 from the PCC.
The whole cost of the CCTV is £11,000. The PCC has agreed to meet a third of the overall cost which is £3,667 with St Aidan’s and Hartlepool Council contributing to the rest of the payment.
