Kings Park School in Boscombe will be the first to benefit from a share of £3 million to be spent on refubishing Bournemouth's schools.
The Government has approved the funding, plus a further conditional £5.3 million for 2010, as part of the nationwide Primary Capital Programme which aims to rebuild or refurbish half of the country's primary schools by 2022.
Cllr Malcolm Davies, Bournemouth Borough Council's cabinet member for children and families, said: "The first school to benefit will be King’s Park Primary, which will see an extensive refurbishment.
"These works are planned to begin in the summer of next year and are scheduled to be completed in 2010.
"Consultation is already underway with the school and with the local forums to discuss the plans and opportunities available."
