Birkdale Primary School in Matlock Road, Southport, plans to use its current playground to build four new classrooms, toilets and offices.

A play deck is to be built on the roof enclosed by a sound-absorbing screen to solve its lack of space.

The plans have been approved by Sefton Council at a recent planning committee meeting and building work is due to start in January 2013
