We are now making a substantial move forward in building our new school. This project is being led by Derbyshire County Council, Concertas and Ashe Construction.
The plans are based on a modern, bright and airy, single-storey school to house our 240 pupils. Classrooms will be spacious independent rooms, with extra spaces for group work and practical activities such as food technology, DT and science. We will also have a spacious open-plan resource area to house our library and to allow pupils to access IT.
Our external spaces will include two playgrounds, our trim trail, outdoor learning area (OLA) as well as space for play, PE and outdoor learning. Our hall will return to allow for us to have our many social opportunities such as lunches (back to being cooked on site), PE and social events such as assemblies, concerts and fund raising events such as our much-missed bingo and disco nights!
The building work will be developed over a series of programmes and we are all aiming for this work to be completed for September 2022. We just cannot wait!
We are now in Phase 3 and 4 of the building programme - this means the roof is being insulated and completed and the internal walls are started to take shape.
Over Easter some major services work will be completed and the external brick work will begin - so we should start to see a lot of progress over the next month. Fingers crossed for continued good weather!
