St Stephen’s Primary School will add new classrooms and a playing field in a bid to create an additional 105 places for local children.

Staffordshire County Council says the expansion is needed to meet demand as new housing developments spring up.

Cllr Philip White, Cabinet member for learning and skills, said: “With new housing proposed for Fradley, it is important we ensure there are enough primary school places available to meet demand.

“The governing body of the school is keen to embrace expansion so that future pupils can benefit from the valuable education offered.

“The right foundation of learning and skills is important for our young people to access good jobs and live healthier, happier and independent lives. With the well-documented rise in birth rates and proposed housing developments, we have to plan ahead so we can continue to offer good and outstanding school places for children in the county.”
