Consultation has begun over plans for a 420-pupil primary school in Faringdon, Oxfordshire.

Vale of White Horse District has launched public consultation for the Oxfordshire County Council plan for the two-form entry school with 90-place nursery on 2.22 hectares of former agricultural land, south of Park Road.

The site is part of a wider, largely residential, redevelopment and has been funded through a s106 agreement.

The main school building, a T-shaped block, will sit to the north of the land with soft and hard play areas and sports pitches to the south.

Its layout is designed to accommodate a possible expansion to a two and a half form entry school if growth demands it.

The project team includes Atkins as planning consultancy and ISG. The consultation runs until April 10.
