LATEST UPDATES RE PREPARATIONS FOR SEPTEMBER 2017
WEEK BEGINNING 5TH JUNE 2017
PROGRESS ON THE EXTENSION
Work is about to commence on the extension with a completion date of the Summer term 2018. As said previously the construction of the extension will be kept completely separate to the day to day operations of the school. We will provide regular updates (including photographs) of progress and will also incorporate its construction into student learning opportunities. Part of the initial work, prior to the end of the term, will be the removal of the earth mound.
MOBILE CLASSROOMS ETC
Following further discussions with Northumberland County Council the location of the mobile classrooms has been changed. They will now be located at the rear of the school building in the courtyard area between the ‘fingers’. The reasons for this are linked mainly to the cost of preparing the initial ‘car park’ area for coping with their weight and the potential safety and operational difficulties of having them at the front of the school. We believe this is a better option and expect delivery and setting up of these classrooms during the summer break. The one area we are continuing to explore is the loss of social/play space that this change will generate. More on this once we have considered all our options.
We have a meeting with Northumberland County Council on the 8th June. We will update everyone once this meeting has taken place and decisions have been made.
Next week we will update you further and include information on such areas as uniform, mobile phones, catering, and Key Stage 3 curriculum; as well as further contact details for key members of staff
