August is nearly here!

The Pallet Gardens are looking lovely – definitely BRIGHT!


They will be moving as the works planned for the school building start to get under way this week.


There is work planned for both the inside and outside of the buildings. Outside the stone work and windows will be getting an overhaul and refurbishment.  Inside the work includes upgrades and replacements to our heating system in both buildings, refurbishment of ceilings, some flooring and redecoration. It is estimated that the work will take until Easter and we will have scaffolding around the building for the whole time.

Classes may be moved to the library or hall for a short time, but disruption will be kept to a minimum and learning and teaching will happen as usual. We have plans to use the Crags Sports Centre to ensure PE continues and clubs and activities will be accommodated. Please do keep an eye on the newsletters, emails, blogs and texts for information as it becomes available. We will also use the bulletin board at the front door.

THERE WILL BE NO ACCESS TO THE PLAYGROUND BEFORE OR AFTER SCHOOL. During school breaks  there  will be no movement on site and strict supervision of pupils. Outwith school hours it is a working building site and health and safety are paramount so children should wait for the 8.45am bell before proceeding to line up downstairs.

ALL PARENTS are invited to an assembly on 21st August at 2pm to hear more about the works and hear the safety advice from the contractor.

Thank you for your support and understanding during this time – as ever it is great that we are all working together to improve our school and make it even better!

School reopens at the usual times on 14th August 2019!

The school office is open for enquiries on 13th August 9.30 – 3pm
