Redhill Infants vacated their building on Castleford’s Queen’s Park Drive in 2015 after merging with Redhill Juniors to become Fairburn View Primary School.
They then moved into a new £500,000 school building on Stansfield Drive.
But since then the former building has been left to deteriorate, and Wakefield Council now sees its demolition as a ‘high priority’.
The planning statement reads: “The empty buildings pose a serious health and safety risk due to the high level of unwanted attention and anti-social behaviour being encountered.”

The site consists of a main building and two stand-alone buildings.
The council says that once the buildings are removed the area will remain fenced off until a decision on its future is made.
