City school to win approval

Liverpool City Council is expected to approve plans for a new £8.8m primary school in Everton next week.

Four Oaks Primary School was created earlier this year from the merger of Hope Valley and Breckfield Primary Schools. It is currently based in the former Hope Valley building on Walton Breck Road.

The plan is to build a new two-form entry primary school with a 26-place nursery on a new site at the former Adam Street playground.

Cllr Joe Anderson, leader of the council, said: "This new school will be located in the heart of the Anfield / Breckfield regeneration area and is a key part of our plan to breathe new life into the area.

"It is great news for the ongoing improvements we are making to the area, and means that as more people move into the area there will be a top quality primary school for children to attend."

Funding has come from the Primary Capital programme.

If approved, work will start in January 2011 and the new school is expected to open to pupils in April 2012. An officer's report will be considered by the council's cabinet on Friday 26 November 2010.
