Trust offices

A PLANNING application for a new office building at Tudhoe Colliery Primary School has been submitted to Durham County Council. Headteacher Jim Smith, CEO of Tudhoe Learning Trust, has applied for consent to have a 160 sq m timber clad modular building added to the school site, where a demountable classroom was situated around 20 years ago. The new building would provide office space for financial, advisory and human resources functions of the Trust, which is currently based in the main school building and is a partnership of seven County Durham Schools. Staff will work around 8am to 5.30pm on weekdays. Consultation runs until June 26, with a decision expected by July 26.
