A Derbyshire primary school is to get a brand new building thanks to a £5million cash boost.

Construction work to replace North Wingfield Primary got underway last week with the help of pupils and teachers from the old school on Blacks Lane.

Councillor Kevin Gillott, Derbyshire County Council’s cabinet member for children and young people, said: “I am very pleased that we have been able to provide this new school building for the present and future children of North Wingfield.

“One of our main priorities is to ensure all Derbyshire children get an education that allows them to grow up to achieve their potential.

“By providing a good environment in which they can learn is an important part of that work.”

The new building is on the site of the former Deincourt School, on Chesterfield Road, which has now been demolished.

Among its features arestate-of-the-art classrooms and IT equipment, a spacious main hall and play areas.

The building is due to be completed for next summer.

The old school dates back to 1909 and is in a very poor condition, according to the council.
