LOCAL families are invited to have their say 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 (SEN) provision at the school.

Consultation on the plans began on Monday (March 17), and will run until March 31.

The consultation document is available at www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/haveyoursay with a response form also available, for people to give their views.

Hard copies of the document are available on request from the county council’s contact centre on 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 the end of March.

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