Harold Hill school move delayed because of “extreme weather”
Harold Hill pupils will not be able to move into their new school building at the start of next term after extreme weather delayed work.
Broadford Primary School got planning permission to have a �4.5m total rebuild of facilities at the site in 2009. Work started on site last January.
The plan included new state-of-the art buildings and outdoor areas and a new nursery site.
It also includes a new playground area, better and safer pedestrian access and easier parking at the school.
The existing nursery will be transformed into a new main reception area and will include an external canopy to provide shelter and a new entrance to the school.
