Construction starts this week on the building in Adams Road which is known as an ‘inclusive learning campus’.
The building will bring together support for children with different educational needs under one roof – including:
A 100 place special school formed by the primary departments of William C Harvey and Moselle special schools
Broadwater Farm primary school
The existing children’s centre
The campus will provide new teaching spaces around a central shared zone, housing a hall, gym, library and hydrotherapy pool.
There will also be an amphitheatre, sensory garden, wildlife pond and horticultural area, external teaching, hard and soft play areas, sand and water play area; and a multi use games area.
Landscaping and a central community area are other important parts of the project
Mulalley Director John Moore said: “This project will see Mulalley and Haringey Council breaking new ground. This is the first school of its kind in this country and we are pleased to be part of it.
“All construction work will be done while taking into consideration the location of the school and how close it is to residents’ homes – and extra care will also be given to minimizing the disruption to children of each school who all have different needs.”
