New class at school

PLANS have been unveiled by Filey School to install a new temporary classroom on its premises.

The facility would replace another room set to be lost in a proposed conversion to accommodate pupils suffering from Higher Functioning Autism.

The single storey building will be similar in colour and appearance to existing temporary classrooms.

The plans have been submitted by Jacobs Engineering.

A company statement said: “The main benefits of the scheme include that it helps to revitalise the school by providing enhanced teaching and learning facilities for staff and pupils with special needs without the loss of standard teaching facilities.

“The development will not have a detrimental affect on surrounding landscape features and no car parking spaces will be lost as a result of the development.”
