We currently have 175 children on roll, which include children from our immediately surrounding area as well as children who travel up to 20 miles to come here.
We moved into our new building on Mill Lane in November 2011 from our old school on Latona Street which was over 100 years old.Although we were sad to leave our old building, it had unfortunately become very tired and was struggling to meet the needs of a 21stcentury school.
We were very lucky indeed to be granted 6.5million pounds to create our new building in which the children had their first day on 7thNovember 2011.
We worked closely with the architect and construction company to make sure that our wonderful new school environment has been designed and built specifically to meet the needs of our children.
We have light, bright classrooms which all have direct access to outdoor covered learning areas and fabulously equipped spacious play areas, an outdoor dining area and our school allotment. We also have a Multi Use Games Area and an excellent sports field which means matches can carry on almost whatever the weather!
Inside we have a large sports/arts hall with retractable seating for an audience of 150 and a separate dining room where children have the choice to eat nutritious hot meals which are cooked on site or their own packed lunches from home. We have a central ‘learning street’ which runs down the spine of our school and enables children from all classes to learn outside their classroom, taking advantage of the banks of computers and Smart Table situated there if they wish. We have a number of small teaching spaces which allow for focused small group or individual teaching where appropriate to meet children’s needs.
We are also proud to have a sensory room which has been superbly equipped thanks to additional grants from the National Lottery and the Lords Taverners Fund. Our school is fully accessible and has facilities to meet a wide variety of needs
We also have a community suite which can be separately accessed and is available for use by community groups and children’s services.
