PUPILS at a primary school in Weston are set to get new classrooms thanks to a £2.25million funding boost.

Milton Park Primary School wants to replace three temporary teaching blocks with two new ones, plus a storage facility.

The school, in Milton Park Road, aims to make the improvements because, it says, the current classrooms are in a poor condition.

There will, however, be no increase in pupil capacity at the school following the work, which is now subject to planning approval from North Somerset Council.

It follows a grant from the unitary authority to improve classrooms and, at a later stage, create a 15-pupil pre-school and two learning zones.

The council expects to make a decision on the school’s planning application for new classrooms by the end of July.
