School Environment

Visitors to the school regularly comment on our calm learning environments and we have recently started a programme to improve the aesthetics both inside and outside of the building.

 

Our outside areas include 2 large playgrounds (one with a grassy area) both with climbing equipment as well as a separate outside area for our Reception aged children.  We are also extremely lucky to have a ‘Forest School’ on site which is regularly used by the Nursery and Reception children as well as other year groups as part of clubs.

 

 

 

 We have recently had our ‘Orchard’ re-vamped and are looking forward to a (hopefully) bumper crop of apples  and pears later in the year! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 We also have also developed a ‘Learning Garden’ where each year group will have a planter to grow delicious vegetables. Our 'Sensory Garden' is currently being built so watch this space!

 

   

 

 

 

 

The inside of our building is semi open plan with all classes (except Year 1) in classrooms next to each other. The open plan nature of the building means that corridors run through classrooms which can limit space,  however, our teachers are extremely creative at finding ways to maximise the space available in order to make the  best possible learning environments for the children.  

Children’s work is displayed both in classrooms and all around the school along with a beautiful (and very large) piece of art on display in the Key Stage 2 hall.  All children from Reception to Year 6 were involved in creating our unique masterpiece, which highlights our school values.  We will be undertaking a similar project in the 2016/17 school year, in order to produce more artwork for the school.
