The school buildings, dating from 1911, were enhanced in 1995 by the addition of a new classroom link building to one of the outside classrooms. A further new classroom was added in the summer of 1999, completely enclosing a quiet area, with planters and foundation stage play equipment. The new gymnasium was constructed in 2003 and outfitted with all the latest sports exercise equipment, thanks to the generous donations of Discovery UK the personal training courses provider. The Enhanced Resource development was successfully completed in April 2004 with the extended provision and adventure playground.
The accommodation consists of a main building housing 10 classes, plus a large extended stone building which accommodates the highly inclusive Enhanced Resource Base, catering for pupils with Special Educational Needs. The main building also comprises a hall, library, computer suite, staff room, offices and cooking kitchen. A recently refurbished heated “learner” swimming pool is located on the extensive campus, together with large hard play areas, gardens, a grassed playing field, tennis,netball courts multisports arena and an environmental area with grass and flower meadows teaching areas and safe access to the river.
The School has now had three very complimentary inspections and praise from visiting H.M.I. The first inspection was in May 1997, the second June 2001 and most recently in September 2006, an even more successful, OFSTED inspection. We have further expanded our work in Literacy, Numeracy and Science providing small group reinforcements to our already high standards across the curriculum. The teachers, children and governors look forward to, and continue to plan for, further developments within our local community. Recent exciting innovations have included Philosophy For Children and Mind Mapping across the vibrant curriculum.
