A school where important meetings are held using tables and chairs designed for children as young as two will be extended after plans were approved.
An application for the extension, at Upottery Pre-School, was given the green light by district planners.
Works will now take place on the build, which will be utilised as an office or meeting space.
The school’s office space is no longer fit for purpose as it is too small to serve the administrative needs of the day-to-day running of the school.
As a result, meetings can’t be held during normal pre-school hours, and are seating at tables and chairs designed for two to five-year-old children.
As part of the approved plans, the school’s current office will be converted into a sensory room.
The application said: “This would further enable the pre-school to offer a facility, not only for children with special education needs, but for all children attending Upottery Pre-School.”
