New school building

 

7th December 2018

Well things have really moved on in the last couple of weeks. The gatehouse is now in place to help make sure that delivery vehicles arrive at agreed times and are escorted to the main site. Work has begun on widening 'the ball zone' ready for the new multi-use games area (MUGA) to be built. The children were quite excited as with all the rain it looked like we were also getting a swimming pool!  Over the next two weeks the bike and scooter shelters will be moved to the paved area next to the Year 1 outside play area; more equipment is being delivered and the permanent site offices are being installed.

 

19th November 2018

We're very excited that work has started on site this week. The site is being made secure, offices are being set up and equipment is being delivered.  Over the next week the bike and scooter shelters will be moved to the paved area next to the Year 1 outside play area; additional fencing will be put up to ensure safe pedestrian access; and work will begin on widening 'the ball zone' ready for the new multi-use games area (MUGA) to be built.  The build team will be meeting with Mrs McLuckie and Miss Hicks every week to discuss next steps and ensure all the risk assessments are kept up to date.  

 

2nd November 2018

We are expecting work to start on site in the week beginning Monday 19th November 2018.  We will find out more details next week but this is likely to begin with bringing equipment and offices on site and ensuring that the building areas are all cordoned off. 

 

25th September 2018

We are delighted to let you all know that planning permission was unanimously agreed for our new school building.  We anticipate that work will start on site after half term. The first phase of work will involve cordoning off the existing Ball Zone and replacing it with a multi-use games area (MUGA).  The other two playgrounds will remain in use during this time.  We have already staggered break and lunch times to ensure that there less children using the play areas whilst the build is completed.  We have also opened up the library and courtyard to all key stage 1 and 2 children at lunchtimes.
