CONSULTATION has begun on plans to build a new primary school for Johnston.

Pembrokeshire County Council plans to replace the existing school with a new building in order to provide improved facilities, including enhanced library, IT and sports facilities.

The new building would be located about a mile away from the existing school site.

The council also plans to add a Learning Resource Centre for Special Education Needs provision at the school.

Statutory consultation on the plans began this week and will run until March 31.

The consultation document is available on the council's website.

Hard copies are also available on request from the county council's contact centre (phone 01437 764551).

A meeting will take place at the school for staff, governors and parents on Wednesday , March 5.

Following the meeting plans for the new building will go on display at Johnston Institute (accessible when the venue is open for an event), until March 31.

Built in 1981, the Johnston Community Primary School currently has 188 pupils on its roll.
