Expansion plans for a Rustington school have been submitted.

Summerlea Community Primary School, which was built in 1998 and currently has two classes per age group, is due to take a ‘bulge year’ due to a high demand for places in the area.

West Sussex County Council is planning to install a permanent modular unit containing two classrooms, toilets, and storage facilities, accommodating 60 pupils and staffed by one new full-time teacher and one part-time teacher.

The building will be at the front of the school site where the current bark chip play area is located.

The play area will be relocated to a nearby grassed area.
