The construction of the new Broadacre Primary School, which will see the existing building demolished and replaced, has now approved by the Regional Schools Commissioner.

The new build will provide 630 pupil places – 210 more places than the existing building – for children in the North Carr area of the city.

It will also have a 52 place nursery and a 10-place Special Educational Needs Autism Spectrum Disorder provision.

Hull Esteem and its partners will deliver the new school and are working closely with Hull City Council’s major projects team, the school and Academy Trust to develop a design and build contract.

If planning permission is granted in October, the new school will be open in February 2022.

Councillor Peter Clark, portfolio holder for learning, skills and safeguarding children, said: “I am pleased that the project has taken another step forward and works will commence later this year.

“This school is one of several across Hull that are being remodelled or expanded to provide a further 1,110 pupil places, ensuring we meet the rising number of children needing school places. Ensuring we provide special educational needs provision is also a top priority for the city.”
