As you may be aware, Keepmoat Regeneration Engie is commencing building work on the fields surrounding school a little earlier than expected. They are planning to put their perimeter fencing up on 16th October 2017. It is an exciting project particularly for our pupils as they will have lots of opportunities over the three years for a variety of workshops and competitions. The project also includes the building of wetlands which we as a school will be able to use in the future.
As with all building projects there will be some drawbacks and disruptions. As you can see from the plans we have included, the site will not be divided into two. There will be perimeter fencing (marked on the map by a red line) surrounding the whole site, meaning that Queen Mary Road and pathways will be closed between our school and Prince Edward. This also includes the pathway leading down the side of the school boundary. The only way into our school will be via Prince of Wales Road and Queen Mary Road. This could be for at least 18 months.
This has come at an awkward time for us as we will also be having building works happening. We have attached the plans for our exciting new extension to the front of school. As you can see it includes a larger reception area and offers a more secure building for our pupils and staff. This work is due to take 16 weeks and commences in the half term holidays.
During this work the front of school will be closed off, including the gate leading from church. Access into school will be via the side of the parish centre and through the main gates from the parish carpark. There will be an outside door leading to the library which will be the temporary office. Reception and nursery parents can go round to their classes as normal. Everyone else will need to wait in the junior playground. When the bell goes children will need to line up in their designated areas (we will practise this with the children before half term) to be collected by their teacher and escorted to class. At the end of the day, parents will need to wait in the junior playground for their children. Again, the teacher will bring them out. The same collection process will apply for after school clubs.
As the main gates to school are going to be used as access for the whole school during the building works, the parish carpark will be closed in order to keep all the children safe.
We do appreciate that the closures of Queen Mary Road, footpaths and our parish carpark may cause inconveniences.
Maps and plans for both projects will be on display in the hall during parent’s evening. We will also put them on our website and update you should any changes occur on either project.
