Birmingham City Council’s Planning Committee has today (Thursday 21st June) approved and application from the Department for Education’s Education and Skills Funding Authority (ESFA) to rebuild a Frankley junior school to Birmingham City Council for approval.
The brand new single storey school will replace the existing Reaside Academy, as part of the government’s Priority School Building Programme.
The new building will be built to the north of the school site, allowing the existing school to continue functioning until it is completed, at which time the old buildings will be demolished.
The new building will provide a more modern and functional home for the school community of 240 pupils, ranging from Years 3 to 6, and staff.
The application was passed, subject to conditions, by planning committee with no questions or concerns raised.
