Expansion and the growth of Beechwood
We are eagerly waiting for the first signs of construction and that sadly will be the taking away of three medium sized trees near the playground/walkways. New parents have been visiting us whilst choosing the right school for their children before the deadline of January 13th and many have commented upon the excellent facilities we have at our disposal and it is indeed fortunate that we will not be loosing any of our field, playgrounds or amenities! The school is to be enhanced further with a new library, staffroom, changing rooms as well as four new classrooms.
As a school we have drawn up short, medium and long term maintenance and new build projects which we self-manage on our ‘Self Help’ Saturdays, do look in our front entrance for reference. The building work is due to commence after Easter, even though we have no official dates as yet.
Just a reminder about children being Safe on Line
As a school we strongly believe in the safeguarding of children online (please talk to your children about the dangers of posting online). We have recently been made aware of some ill advised comments being sent between past and present pupils and we would like to remind parents to be vigilant about what their children are doing online. It should be noted that children under the age of 13 should not be using social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). Mr Lovegrove who is a trained CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Command) consultant is regularly teaching the children about staying safe online.
Have a good week….
