PLANS have been submitted to build a new school at Persimmon Homes Severn Valley's Haywood Village site.
When complete, the site will deliver over 2,500 homes to local families.
The plans for the school building, which are designed to host Weston Airfield Primary School, have recently been submitted to North Somerset Council.
The building will also boast a nursery and a community space.
The T-shaped building will come complete with solar panels, wildflower areas, insect hotels, log-based habitats and maybe even beehives.
When complete, there will be 630 places through three forms of entry at the school. This will comprise of 21 classrooms, a 103-place nursery provision, and a school hall, kitchen facilities, and staff rooms.
Not only that, but there will also be a community hub with studios and changing room facilities.
Paul Moody, Persimmon Homes Severn Valley managing director, said:
“Persimmon is extremely happy with the good progress being made at our high standard Haywood Village site in Weston, allowing us to start the next stage of the development which is building the school for the children who will occupy the new homes.

“Weston Airfield will be the second primary school that we will be built for the community we are creating and the plans – from its environmentally friendly energy sources and beautiful design to the nature-rich surroundings and community spaces – are exciting proposals to put to the council.

“We’re not just building houses here, but homes. Throughout our work, creating a sense of place has been central to our vision, and that has not just meant these public facilities but ensuring our Community Champions initiative has benefitted people in Weston-super-Mare.

“I look forward to seeing more award-winning work from our brilliant crews at Haywood Village and, eventually, Weston Airfield Primary serving the generations of children that will grow up here.”

The homebuilder is committed to supporting local organisations and community projects. It donates over £700,000 to good causes each year as part of its Community Champions initiative.

Local beneficiaries have included North Somerset People First, Westhaven School, Weston Jets Baseball Club, Haywood Village Academy, and Weston-Super-Mare RNLI.
