We are very pleased to be able to tell you some exciting news about our new Nursery. For nearly six months we have had nothing to report and very little progress appeared to have been made. The main reason has been waiting for the outcome of our bid for funding from the EFA. We have now been told that this bid for funding has been successful! Nearly 4000 schools applied for the grant: we were one of only 286 schools who were awarded it for new building work.
The contractors will move on site during the week beginning May 2nd 2017. It is anticipated that they will be on site until August 2017. The build period will last for eighteen weeks and the new Nursery will open in the Autumn term 2017. The contract to build the school has been awarded to a company called Northern Bear. We hope to bring you progress reports and pictures as the build progresses. There will also be opportunities for carefully supervised visits to the building site. When the Academy was built, our children thoroughly enjoyed learning about the construction process.
We are now taking applications for places at the Nursery. Applications forms can be obtained from the School Office.
