Bristol is set to build up to four new primary schools and expand a further 15 as part of a new city council strategy to cope with a growing demand for places.
As part of a £31 million investment this financial year, there will also be better provision for children with special educational needs. Greater integration with mainstream schools is planned as well as closer ties with local communities.
