A brand new primary school with a nursery will be a major part of the scheme – over 50% of you asked for this as part of our first exhibition, and we will deliver it. The Local Education Authority has also highlighted the need for a new primary school in the area and is supportive of our plans.
The three-form entry school will have space for more than 600 pupils and will also have a nursery for children ages 2-4 years old. The school’s facilities, like its gym and some of its classroom space, will be available for the rest of the community to use out of school hours.
The school will be in the middle of the site so that it is accessible and it will be delivered early on as part of Phase 1 to help to bring the neighbourhood to life.
