Building work

As you can see, the building work is developing for the new building at Barley Close. There will soon be more heavy machinery on site as the building starts to take shape. Speller Metcalfe (building contractors) meet regularly with the school in order to ensure that the building work has minimal impact to the school day and all the children, staff and families are safe at all times. We would like to thank Speller Metcalfe for their professionalism and organisation so far.


From Monday we will be able to open Stockwell Drive school entrance at the beginning and end of the day so families can use this pedestrian access to drop off and pick up their children.


As part of the work, we will also be redesigning our playground, this includes a hard surface extension and the challenge play equipment being replaced and relocated.  The hard surface extension will start next week; there will be fencing on part of the playground as this work is carried out. This work will take around 4 weeks to complete. During this time we would like to use as much of the school grounds as possible in order for the children to have a full and exciting lunchtime. The staff team will help support the children with this. In order for this to happen we need as many children as possible to bring wellies into school so we can use our school field at lunchtime. Wellies will need to be brought to school in a named bag so they can be neatly stored. Please also put your child’s name in the wellies.


Thank you for your continued partnership and your patience during this time.
