THIS is how the new primary school in the heart of the former Athletes' Village will look.

The new school is expected to cost around £13million pounds and will cater for 460 pupils.

It will be situated in the heart of the village which was home to the athletes during the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

Plans for the school have been lodged by the city council and have yet to be considered but it is expected the primary will open its doors in 2018.

A report to planning bosses says: "The site for the new Dalmarnock primary school is located at the heart of the plan which is transforming the 2014 Commonwealth Games Village into a new neighbourhood.

"It is at an important position within the heart of the Commonwealth Village and presents an opportunity to contribute to and enhance the local community.

"A pedestrian link runs along the northern edge of the site, forming the primary link to the Cuningar Woodland Park across the River Clyde.

"The pathway is flanked by the gardens of the new care home on the north and the proposed playground of the primary school on the south.

"The conjunction of children's play spaces, an enclosed garden with potential community access and a pedestrian link to the Cuningar Loop Woodland Park generates one of the most important public spaces in the new development."

The report says the footpath will be a great asset for the new school as the park will be within walking distance.

It adds: "A varied environment of public and private spaces will be created, ranging from landscaped school play spaces to a public square in front of the main school entrance which becomes part of the route to the park."

The new primary will provide 14 classrooms, assembly and gym halls, drama and nurture rooms, administrative and office space and a library and the public square will have a clock tower creating a landmark along the walkway.

The report says: "This space offers opportunities for formal school events, community events and an informal gathering space for parents at the start and end of the school day.

"A seven-aside pitch bookends the site with a bank of trees offering a buffer to the neighbouring housing."

George Redmond, the city council's spokesman for jobs, business and investment, said: “While the planning application for the new school has still to be considered, the building of a new school is very much to be welcomed in this part of the city, where so much investment in recent years has brought high quality new homes, jobs and community facilities.
