Parent meeting about the school building project

Dear Parents/Carers,   September 2015-Return to School date     I am writing to share some exciting news with you. As you are aware the school is expanding and as such we require more space. The Acorn house site is now ready for building; planning permission was granted last week, the building of our new two story block will start in late April. In order to accommodate all the building works I have had to make some minor changes to the dates that we finish in July and the date that we will return in September. I want to give you as much notice as possible.   As well as a brand new 2 story block being built there is a huge amount of work that needs to happen to the existing building, dining hall and playground. All of this work needs to happen in the 6 weeks summer holidays, in order to ensure that the work can start straight way we will be finishing for the summer break on Friday 17 July 2015.   In order to ensure that all the work is completed and the school is ready for the new academic year the children will be starting back slightly later than usual.   Children will l return to school on Wednesday 9 September 2015.   New reception children and children starting nursery for the first time will be advised separately about starting dates for September.   I would like to invite all parents to some meetings to explain in more detail the changes to the existing building and share the plans for the new block and how this will impact on the school as a whole.   I hope that as many of you as possible will attend to share the details of this exciting venture for the school. The meetings will take place on Wednesday 11 March 2015 at 6.00pm and on Thursday 19 March at 6.00pm.in the lower hall.   I look forward to seeing you all then.   Thank you for your continued support.   Yours Sincerely       Sonia Rutherford Head Teacher
