New £6m Primary School Approved For Growing Village

TeachWell - Putting Education Professionals First

Long-awaited plans for a £6m new school and nursery in a growing west Norfolk village have been approved.

After years in development, Norfolk County Council’s planning committee has approved plans to build a new 210-pupil primary school and a 56-place nursery for Gayton.
Construction on farmland next to West Hall Farm, with access from Spring Vale, is expected to start this summer with the new school to open from September 2021.

It will consist of seven classrooms and group rooms, with a central library and resource area and a multi-purpose hall.

The nursery building will provide two children’s rooms, associated toilets and nappy change, along with a shared kitchen area, storage and administration areas.

The new facilities will replace the current school that has been described by parents as “dated”.

Graham Middleton, county councillor for Gayton and Nar Valley, said: “I’m delighted the committee has approved the plans for this long-awaited and much-needed school. It means that there will be more school places for children in the growing Gayton community and that they’ll be learning in some of the most modern classrooms in Norfolk.”
