Tyne View School to become children’s centre

Gateshead Council’s decision-making cabinet has agreed to convert Tyne View Primary School into a children’s centre.

The centre will include early years services, play facilities, family centre staff, a food co-op and an adventure playground.

It will also provide services for disabled children including pre-school childcare for children with special needs.

The work to convert the building will cost £1.3 million. Closure of the school was controversial in the Teams but the new facility is expected to open by the end of 2008.
