A two-storey SEND school is going to be built at St. Edwards Academy (Credit: Google)
The site will be based at St. Edwards Academy, in London Road, Romford, and will provide 60 primary and secondary school children with an education.
It will be tailored to support kids with social, emotional and mental health difficulties and Autistic Spectrum Condition.
The two-storey building will be built on part of an existing car park and a small portion of Westlands Playing Field.
It is going to have 12 classrooms with associated calm rooms, a multi-purpose hall, dining hall, PE changing room and a training room.
There will also be a dedicated outdoor play space for the school with a soft informal play area and a hard outdoor multi use games area.
The new facility is expected to create around 45 jobs.
Havering Council approved the plans because there is a need for a new SEND school in the borough and existing ones cannot be expanded.
