Plans to install an eco-building on the site of a former mobile classroom have been announced by our Head teacher Andrew Moorcroft in the first parent newsletter of 2017.
“There is no better time than the start of a new year to set targets, to make changes or achieve new things. With this in mind, I am hoping you will all support what is more of a New Year’s Raise-olution than Resolution!”
“There are no funds available from Warwickshire County Council to pay for new buildings so if we want to achieve this dream, we need to raise the money ourselves.”
“We are hoping to secure funding for the project, but to fulfil the criteria of many charitable trusts there will have to be an element of involvement by the school community,” he says.
The plan is to use the empty space alongside the playground, where a mobile classroom once stood, for an inspirational eco building to house a learning environment which will provide a contrast to the open plan layout of the main school building.
The space will be available for all pupils to use and will give direct access to Gruffalo Woods, providing a new dimension to our outdoor learning programme.
The school has launched two fundraising initiatives to kick start the project and are keen to hear from any members of the school community who have skills or contacts that might be of use in achieving the ambition of improving the school’s facilities for the benefit of all pupils.
