Hatfield school set to expand
A PRIMARY school in Hatfield has been given the green light to expand.
Green Lanes Primary School in Hatfield Garden Village will be able to accommodate an extra 15 new reception age pupils a year from September.
The �1.5m expansion will include three permanent classrooms and a multi-activity area which can be used for small group teaching.
A landscaping scheme will screen the new buildings.
Cllr Richard Thake, executive member for education, said demand for primary school places was increasing across the county.
He said: “Hertfordshire County Council works hard to provide primary school places where they are needed.
“It is important our schools are responsive to the changing circumstances in their local areas.”
