A new primary school, co-located in a brand new building with Frank Barnes School for Deaf Children, has been approved by planners.
The new primary school in the King's Cross development would initially take 30 children a year – rising to 60 per year soon after it opens.
Under the proposals, the developer agreed to build a new primary school and this agreement was expanded to bring Frank Barnes into the scheme.
The aim is for the new schools to be inclusive and to offer high quality education to a broader range of children. This would include children with a wider range of hearing abilities and other additional needs, who could be supported across the two schools.
The new schools would have a common entrance and a range of opportunities for working together. The development would provide two high quality new schools, designed to meet the particular needs of pupils.
