The designs for Mulberry Primary School in Parkhurst Road, Tottenham, will be unveiled for the first time at a public exhibition on Tuesday, March 29.

Work planned at the school includes new classrooms with better access for children with disabilities, new play facilities and a new creche.

Councillor Lorna Reith, Haringey Council cabinet member for children and young people, said: “This isn’t just about bricks and mortar.

“The aim is not just to improve the fabric of the school – but also extend and improve links with the local community.

“I’d like to urge as many people as possible to come along and see these impressive plans for themselves.”

Drawings illustrating the new facilities will be on display at the school’s infant hall in Parkhurst Road from 3.30-6pm at the drop-in session.

School staff and Haringey Council officers will also be available to answer questions.

Haringey Council secured £3million towards the work in an out of court settlement.

The council launched legal proceedings against a Government decision to withdraw £8.5million education funding last summer.
