Welcome to the Autumn Term, I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing break with your families and friends. At school a lot of work has continued in the absence of children to help prepare for the new school year. You may have noticed some of the changes already but I felt it would be useful to provide you with an explanation of some of the works.
With such an interesting array of school buildings it can be difficult to know where to start with redecoration. If you have been to the Front Desk you will have noticed the redecoration of the Administrative areas of the school, which has made a great improvement to the working environment. We have managed to also repaint external doors on many buildings. As time progresses the plan will be to work through the other interiors to ensure the working environment throughout the school is conducive to good quality thinking and learning.
We are fortunate to have so many beautiful trees on our site many of which are testament to the many years of education that have been provided on this land! We have to have the trees surveyed regularly to ensure they are healthy and safe and a lot of work has been completed in the holidays to ensure this is the case.
The most striking change is on the playground where you may have noticed the removal of the (very) tall Leylandii trees. The obvious gain of this is the additional light and space created. This will ensure that the gated Year 1 garden area has an opportunity to be used effectively and keep the playground out of shadow for significant parts of the day. On removal of the trees it was obvious that the tall boundary fence behind is in need of replacement. Once the new fence is in place a 6ft screen will be fitted around the boundary to provide the school and local residents with suitable privacy. Thank you for your understanding as we await this last stage of the work to be carried out.
On behalf of the school community I would like to express particular thanks to Mrs Hazell the School Manager and Mr Umney our Site Manager, without whose dedication the improvement of our site would be very limited indeed!
