AN exciting £395,000 building project is underway at a Cleveleys school.

A series of alterations at St Teresa’s Catholic Primary on St George’s Avenue will radically transform the school’s appearance.

The front of the school building will be remodelled to create a modern new visitors entrance, administration area and staff room.

The Year One classroom will be extended to provide more teaching space and small group teaching areas for one to one sessions. A new outdoor area will be created for Year One pupils.

Covered cycle racks and a buggy area will also be added which it is hoped will encourage more parents to walk their children to school. Safer pedestrian access will also be added.

Headteacher Elizabeth Yates said: “We are delighted work has started on an exciting new chapter in the school’s history. The accommodation upgrade will create a more flexible and adaptable space for us to use.

“This will also provide more scope for specialised small group teaching areas better adapted to meet the challenges of 21st century education.”

Work is set to be finished in May, with cash coming from the Blackburn Diocese.
