(UK) Hull: Primary school to include 10-place autism classroom; official: 'pleased'

Feb 8, 2022, Hull Live: Multi-million pound Hull school to open for first look this week

E. England A new £8.2m [$11M] Hull school is opening for a first look this week. Broadacre Primary School, Wawne Road, will add 210 places to that of the old building, bringing capacity up to 630 pupils. It incorporates a 10-place purpose-built space for children with Autistic Spectrum Condition, as well as a 52-place nursery, and enhanced external spaces and teaching areas, including a fenced multi-use games area. On Thursday, there will be a first look at what the new school has to offer as Hull City Council Leader, Councillor Daren Hale, Portfolio Holder for Children’s Services, Councillor Shane McMurray, Lisa Staines, Head of Broadacre school and representatives from Esteem Consortium and Sewell Construction, open the doors for the very first time. Pupils will officially move into the school during spring time…. Every class completed a mini project on autism to learn more about the condition during World Autism Awareness Week, while children waved flags to celebrate the “topping out” when the build reached its highest point last summer…. Councillor Shane McMurray, Portfolio Holder for children’s services said: “Not only does this new build provide a fantastic environment for local children, but I’m pleased that it offers purpose-built provision for children with autism. “This school is part of the council’s wider investment of £50milion into the city’s schools, to ensure children have the best learning environments possible, and this school will provide just that.” Lisa Staines, Executive Head at Broadacre Primary School said: “Staff and pupils have been involved throughout the process and everyone has really enjoyed watching the building progress, as well as being involved in key milestones. "We are now very excited to move in and enjoy the school.”
