We are extremely proud to have moved into our £4 Million new key stage 2 building. Children in years 3 to 6 were able to start learning in their new classrooms from 15th October 2010. Housing a new hall, 8 classrooms, food technology room, offices and staff faciliites there are also two satelite classrooms for neighbouring school Dorothy Goodman.
Other aspects of the new building include eco-friendly toilet water collected from the roof, 30 laptops available for classroom use, desktop computers, state of the art heating and ventilation and sheltered outdoor areas for teaching and learning.
We appreciate just how lucky the school and surrounding community is to have such a stunning new building. All children deserve the right to learn in stimulatiing bright and eco-friendly environments and that is exactly what we have now. We are looking forward to developing our curriculum further to make learning even more exciting and appealing to all.
The inclusion opportunities are so much greater now that Dorothy Goodman children and staff are on site and we are looking forward to being pioneers in providing inclusive education.
Our Key Stage 1 building has also undergone extensive remodelling and refurbishment, including the provision of a new teaching area for our highly successful Nurture Group. Other areas that have benefited from redevelopment are heating and ventilation including new windows and doors, toilets and cloakrooms, carpeting and lighting.
As part of the new building, our old Key Stage 2 building has been demolished to accomodate new playgrounds which will include a ball court, one of which is fully enclosed.
We have a nature trail, new trees and plants and landscaping around the school. A market garden to grow our own vegetables in and a chicken coop with 12 chickens.
We are constantly fundraising to buy new equipment for the children to use both within school and on the playground.
