Dear Parents and community,
Building is currently under way. Updates and key information will be shared through the weekly school newsletter.
The new build will be two storey and be built on the KS2 quiet area. It will adjoin the existing school and be a block of eight classrooms with toilets and break out rooms. The corridor will continue seamlessly and we will have a music studio outside the current hall back door. The hall itself will be expanded thus making corridors narrower around the hall space and internal cupboards will be removed. There will also be development of existing classrooms that will need to be adapted. The location of the new build has been chosen to minimise the impact on the local residents.
The KS2 playground has been dug out (ie. bamboo removed and playground extended into this corner) to cater for more children. This soil has been moved around to the KS1 area and that playground will be extended over the area where current play equipment is.
The builders have located their site at the far end of the KS2 playground and a corridor has been made along the back of the playground in order for work to be as least disruptive as possible. Once phase one is complete, we will move the whole school into the new block and phase two will start on the existing school improvements.
The governors will ensure, through careful management, that we maintain our unique family values and approachability and all new staff will be interviewed with this in mind. We are very proud of our school ethos and our staff are committed to developing this project in a positive way for our community.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions about this exciting chapter of our school life. Please drop me an email if you want to discuss anything to firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs Heidi Price
