CHESHIRE County Council has agreed a £575,000 extension and adaptation project for Woodlands Primary School in Ellesmere Port.
The infant and junior schools were amalgamated last year and are operating in two buildings on opposite sides of Eddisbury Road.
Following completion this year of a new children’s centre in the infant building, work will begin in the junior building to develop a joint administrative centre to service the whole school.
Funding for the project involves Cheshire County Council and the school’s governing body.
Lead member for children’s services David Rowlands said: “Construction work and adaptation to parts of the junior building will include a staffroom large enough to accommodate all primary school staff together with a specialist teaching area.
“The project will begin during the summer and will take approximately six months to complete.”
