Dear Parents, Carers and Guardians,
I am delighted to be able to say that our long awaited building project starts next week. Over the half term break, our building contractors will move onto our site and prepare their 35-week program of work.
E G Carter and Co Ltd has been appointed as the Principal Contractor and the resident site manager is Mr Graham Lammas.
As with any building project, there will be some change to our everyday routine when we return to school for the start of Term 6. The first phase of the project involves improvements to our KS2 toilet block and a change of venue for our school office. Phase two is planned to begin over the summer holidays where the foundations and outlining structure for our new hall will be put in place.
The only noticeable change for KS2 pupils will be the use of toilets and cloakrooms. Pupils will have coat and bag pegs placed outside their classrooms and a temporary toilet block will be brought into school for pupils to use as current toilets are being replaced.
There will be no change for Nursery, Reception, Y1, Y2 and Y3 pupils for Term 6.
Pupils in Years 4 will use the toilet block along the Y1 corridor and Year 5 and 6 pupils will have alternative toilets to use.
We are all very excited about the changes and improvements this project will bring on its completion, hopefully by February 2020. We aim to keep you informed as the project progresses and where other regular routines may be altered.
All contract staff have had the necessary checks so they can work safely on school premises and Graham Lammas will talk with all pupils during a school assembly about safe working practices for pupils and work staff. He intends to involve the pupils as such as possible in the project, so they understand how plans, drawings, materials and instructions all work together to bring about a successful and safe building project.
As soon as we have further details for Phase 2, we will write again and let you know.
'Caring for others' and 'thinking of others' are two of our school Values.
Here we have examples from our wonderful enterprising young people who have thought up engaging ways to raise money for charities which they wish to support.
We have a group of up and coming young choreographers who would like to offer an
After School Club to children in Years 2 and 3.
The club involves learnng dance routines set to music.
If you would like to join this club, please see Mrs Foster or Mr Archer for a letter.
The club is due to start on Tuesday 13th November and will run for the rest of this term.
