Exciting plans for a brand new nursery at Goldsmith Primary Academy in Walsall have moved a step closer after planning permission was granted by Walsall Council.
The nursery will provide outstanding learning and facilities and enables the school to provide space for an additional 32 children aged two to four - supporting the need for additional school places required in the local area over the next three years.
Designed by Baily Garner, the nursery's design accommodates space for both whole-class and small group activities, a new playground and an inclusive environment for children with special educational needs.
The nursery will be located to the East of the school and provide a modern and bright learning environment for children using both indoor and outdoor space.
Building work is due to start in spring 2021 with the planned opening of the nursery in autumn 2021.
Commenting on the news, Leanne Bridgwood, Headteacher at Goldsmith Primary Academy said:
"This is fantastic news and a significant step in bringing the project to reality. We are delighted that the plans were accepted - this is a credit to the team at our school, Windsor Academy Trust and our project design consultants Baily Garner."
"The new nursery will build upon the excellent care that we provide in our existing nursery, develop an outstanding learning environment and offer much-needed space to support additional children in the local community."
Will Gregory, Project Lead at Baily Garner, added:
"This is great news for the school and Trust. We at Baily Garner are really looking forward to delivering this scheme in partnership with Windsor Academy Trust and Goldsmith Primary Academy to create a quality learning environment for the local community."
