The Leaders and Governors of our school are extremely pleased that the City Council have decided to invest in our school building.
Plans have been drawn up and work is underway for a 4.7 million expansion project. This will create additional capacity for places at our school, taking the number of pupils from 103 to 127 by Easter 2023.
The two storey expansion to the front of the school will create 8 classrooms, each with their own withdrawal room and easy access to changing facilities. Four of these classrooms will replace the old, temporary mobile buildings at the back of our site, that are no longer fit for purpose. We have been keen to ensure that autistic children in Leicester City have access to a school environment that suits their learning and sensory needs, to ensure that every child is given the opportunity to thrive at school and meet their full potential ready for becoming future adults in our local community.
We are very much looking forward to working with the contractors as the building takes shape, and will be encouraging pupils and parents to have a voice about the new interiors.
