Feedback from staff/children/parents and visitors is that the school is looking very nice especially the décor and are impressed with the amount of work that has been done.
Paintwork and new flooring around the corridors has been done in both the ground and upper floors.

A re-fit of the entrance has been undertaken with new doors and large vestibule/waiting area.
The janitor’s door has been moved further along the corridor.
A new cupboard/room has been created where the entrance to the old staffroom was.
New skirting, lino etc has been laid.
The dividing classroom wall (along the north corridor) was removed and a steel joist inserted to prepare for the dance studio but has been temporarily replaced with a re-sheeted wall to make back into 2 classrooms for the time being. They have been painted too.
A window upstairs in the classroom at the east corridor has been installed.
There has also been a new window created in the new library downstairs in the east corridor.
