School Improvements - 2014/15
Our new entrance.
As the children enjoyed the Easter break, we were busy with our continuous cycle of school improvement.
We were delighted with our entrance upgrade which includes copies of some of the beautiful images contained within the stained glass windows of our Parish Church.
Our school hall has benefitted from window decor and large banners promoting our four 'houses': Chad, Maryvale, Harvington and Oscott.
We live our school motto 'Learning to follow in the footsteps of Jesus with our friends, family and Parish' every day.
We wanted to celebrate our motto in our entrance hall. We worked with an amazing artist. Children submitted their artwork showing what Jesus means to them. School Council shortlisted the winning entries. Children whose picture had been shortlisted, worked with our wonderful artist completing an individual canvas.
They are all displayed altogether in our entrance hall. Come and see them on display. They are stunning. We are very proud of our wonderful children and their artistic talents.
We are working very hard to ensure our building is the best it can be in all areas. Our brilliant kitchen team achieved the top marks in their inspection but this was not reflected in their external door.
We are now very proud of our brand new double glazed door which reflects the fabulous work going on inside!
Our kitchen door was old and battered and in need of replacement.
Nice, new and shiny!
As Year 1 have worked really hard developing their outside learning area, it became apparent that we needed a wall to keep the mud and dirt out. We are really pleased with our new wall and the Year 1 outside learning area is now clean and tidy.
We are constantly developing and improving our school to ensure it is the best it can possibly be.
During November 2014, we improved our entrance hall by installing display boards promoting and celebrating Gospel Values inspired by the Beattitudes.
By living and promoting Gospel Values in our everyday lives, we are preparing our children for successful lives in modern Britain.
The start of a new academic year is always very exciting and looking around school seeing how busy people have been over the Summer break is a real treat.
A lick of paint here and there and some minor improvements (including informative signage) have really brightened school up for the year ahead.
Whilst the Summer holiday is associated with six weeks' rest, it's the best time to carry out major work in school. This year is no exception. During August 2014, a variety of school improvements are taking place:
- Two classrooms (one in Year 6 and one in Year 1) will be repainted with new colour schemes.
- A selection of internal and external doors and pipes will be painted blue.
- Very old and battered carpet in a locker area will be replaced with new, durable flooring.
- The PE equipment storage cupboard will be turned into a new workspace.
As well as these large jobs, reception have ordered some new furniture. Some new signage, which is both attractive and informative, will be fitted in the playground thus improving our outdoor learning spaces too. We are very proud of our school and are constantly working to improve it.
