We now have a definitive completion date for the new school. The new building will be ready for handover to the Local Authority and ourselves on July 10th, somewhat later then we were first told but a date we will all look forward to with great excitement. The building will not be ready at that point for use by pupils as we will have to transfer furniture, education resources and all our ICT equipment over and set up the school for use. This process needs to happens over two or three weeks and have major implications for the running of this school towards the end of the term as we will be boxing up equipment and starting to move it before the completion date. The completion date is set as part of the contract of works and we will be unable to access the school before that date and must take responsibility for it after that date.

The governor's at their last meeting discussed the most effective and safest way to do this and also consulted with the Local Authority as to the best way to transfer from the old school to the new. The conclusion was that the school will have to close early for the summer break to allow the transfer to take place safely. The governor s have taken the decision with great reluctance and do not underestimate the impact for families of a longer summer break and we will use some of the 5 staff training days we take through the school year to offset some of the time lost for pupils. (Please see the message from one of our parent governors below) The break over the summer will ensure that we have the new school up and running in time for the new academic year. We can only stress that the benefits the new school will bring in terms of provision for our pupils will offset the disruption of having to close early. At this point we are proposing to close to pupils on July 6th 2015 rather than July 21st as planned. We will send out the revised term dates for 2014 -2015 after half term.


As a parent Governor – I would like to fully endorse Paul’s comments. It was not a decision the Governing body took lightly but I believe the longer term benefits outweigh the short term disadvantages. Moving to new premises will provide our children and the staff at the school with the facilities they deserve. I would be more than happy to discuss the decision with any parents or carers and can be contacted via the school.
