A senior councillor has signed off on plans to expand a village primary school.

Executive county councillor Patricia Bradwell has agreed to move ahead with a proposal to build two more classrooms for Fourfields school in Sutterton to meet growing demand.

The school - which also serves Wigtoft, Fosdyke and Algarkirk - now has 158 children on its roll currently, despite technically having a capacity of 140.

The new classrooms will allow the school to admit 30 children a year instead of 20 - taking the capacity to 210.

Matthew Clayton, admissions and education provision manager at the county council, said: “The proposal to expand the capacity at Sutterton Fourfields has been approved by the executive councillor for children’s services.

“The next step is to submit a planning application, with full consultation, which we expect to happen this summer.

“If we receive planning permission, we aim to begin work on site in early 2023, with a view to having the improvements completed in time for the start of the autumn term in September 2023.”
