Welldon Park Junior School – Proposed Expansion Plans

welldon_park_logoWelldon Park Junior School is also up for expansion, to cope with a three-form entry in future years. The council have provided proposed plans, which could well change over coming months, to show how they’d support the extra teaching areas needed.

Unlike the Infant school up the road, it’s likely to be a little more difficult to accommodate the building works, without impacting the day to day learning of children, but given the limited options, this seems to be a fairly reasonable solution, with a ‘wrap around’ extension between the school and the alleyway bordering the school parallel to Northolt Road. What’s worthy of note here is that the existing car parking spaces have been removed, and landscaped, which would have been the original approach to the reception area, which relocates to be closer to Wyvenhoe Road – it’s unclear at the moment where additional parking will go, although it’s expected that there will be a small car park further up the hill, just off Kingsley Road opposite the entrance to the Infant School.

An image of the proposed layout is below, and you can read additional PDFs here, here and here.
