The 1,500m² scheme includes a 16 place nursery in addition to a 1FE primary school. Key Stages are organised vertically above a ground floor dedicated to Early Years and community use with each storey featuring its own play-deck area, culminating in a large rooftop playground. These external spaces provide places to gather, learn, socialise and play as well as creating a sense of individual identity and character for the school.
“OUR NEW SCHOOL HAS ALREADY REAPED REWARDS IN TERMS OF RAISED EDUCATIONAL ACHIEVEMENT FOR OUR PUPILS, AND THE CHILDREN AND PARENTS ARE MOST ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT THE BUILDING. THE SCHOOL OFFERS THE CHILDREN A PLACE OF SECURITY AND CARE, AND, MOREOVER, A CHANCE TO BREAK THE CYCLE OF DEPRIVATION.“
Mrs G M Ward, Chair of Governors, St Johns C of E Primary School
