Plans will see schools grow

PLANS to expand two Great Cornard schools under Suffolk County Council’s shake-up of the county’s education system have been submitted.

The county council has applied to build a new annexe featuring two classrooms at Wells Hall Primary School in Great Cornard.

The authority is also seeking permission to convert the existing play area into car parking, create a new hard playground and build a temporary classroom at the site in Wells Hall Road.

Pot Kiln Primary School, which will see an increase in the school roll from 270 to 315 pupils, could also be extended.

Plans for two further classrooms, as well as additional car parking spaces, have been submitted to Babergh District Council.

The county council’s School Organisational Review will see middle schools close in September 2013 as the county changes to a two-tier educational system.

The consultation period for the Wells Hall Primary School application ends on January 20, with the consultation for the Pot Kiln plans ending on January 18.
