A Class Of Their Own

Over the past five years we have seen considerable growth in the number of pupils attending the school. In response to this growth, three years ago the Governors agreed to reallocate the then IT suite to be used as a classroom, enabling us to move to six classes and to alleviate the pressure on split year groups across the previous five.

We now find ourselves in a similar position to that of three years ago – where although not quite at Net Capacity, it is becoming increasingly challenging to split cohorts across the six classes so as to best meet the needs of every individual and maintain our outstanding provision.

Additional space would therefore either a) enable us to have a seventh class (pupil numbers permitting) or b) facilitate an improved learning environment for whole-class teaching or group intervention which is accessible for all of our pupils.

Project objective:

To raise funding to improve the condition of our existing mobile and/or create a new building for additional space, by the end of 2018.

The final solution will depend on the level of fundraising and the different options will be evaluated as part of this project.
