New Building

 

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.
