Our Site and Facilities

site n facilities1The school is set in attractive grounds which includes a good size playing field, trees and a short woodland walk. In addition there are some small garden areas which children enjoy helping to plant and tend.

The school building is divided into two main parts. Key Stage One and Early Years are near the main entrance at the front of the school. There is a Reception Class, Year 1 Class and Year 2 Class in this part of the school. The main administration corridor which houses the school office, headteacher’s office and staff room lead to our hall which is used for PE lessons, assemblies, special performances such as concerts, shows and whole school masses as well as school lunches. Through the hall is our Key Stage Two area. As well as four classrooms for Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 there are a number of smaller teaching rooms which allow our staff to work with individual pupils as well as small groups. These rooms are also used by staff from outside agencies who come into school to work with our children throughout the year.

site n facilities2There are three playgrounds in school. One for Key Stage 1 children (located at the front of the school) this has some small scale play equipment (pencils, stumps and a play house as well as floor markings) which children are free to use, under supervision, at playtimes. Our Key Stage 2 playground is located at the back of the school close to the junior classrooms. This playground has a small climbing frame, floor markings and benches which children freely access during playtimes, again supervised by staff. We have a large fenced in playground which is used for football and other games/activities involving balls. This ensures these games are safe and do not disrupt others when playing. At the side of the fenced playground we also have a tyre park and activity playground – children access these on a rota basis.

School Council is responsible for deciding what play equipment and games they would like school to buy to supplement playtimes. This equipment is purchased from the School Council budget which is allocated each year
