An independent school in Terrington St Clement has applied for planning permission for an additional two-storey building.

Westfield House School, in Sutton Road, is a specialist independent school for children with SEMH (social, emotional and mental health) needs.

The school currently has 42 pupils aged from 10 to 18 years old, and the new building would house the primary aged pupils and allow the school to increase capacity by eight, planning documents state.

A separate application has been submitted for temporary mobile classrooms at the school.
