October 24th 2018

The Building Work has Started this holiday period.
BAM Construction are setting up the site compound and the site is a hive of
activity.

To support the safety of our pupils and visitors we have a main gate
closure in operation for 30mins each day. It would be appreciated if
parents and visitors support us with our traffic management plan to keep
the front of school safe. Please be mindful that there are double yellow
lines on Burnthouse Lane and it is important to keep the roadway clear of
parked vehicles to allow pupils and delivery vans clear and safe access to
and from school.

Regular updates, photos and newsletters from BAM Construction will be
posted here.

October 2018 Update

Site Set up – Building Work to Commence

BAM Construction will be setting up the builder’s compound and boundary
fencing this month ready for the construction work to commence on the new
school site. This will mean that a proportion of the main school car park
will no longer be available to us as it will be part of the boundary walls
to segregate the building site from the rest of the school operations.

Gate Closure and restrictions for vehicles to the school site from Monday 8th October

In anticipation of the site set up we will be restricting vehicle access to
the main school site and car park facilities for 30 mins at the end of each
day before the pupils are due to leave school.

This will mean that there will be No Vehicle Access to the school site
during these times.

Main Gate Closure times will be as follows:
Closed for 30 mins Between 2.50pm to 3.20pm Monday to Friday

Every second week (School Improvement Hour)

The closure times will be between:

1.50pm – 2.20pm on a Tuesday Week 2 only

The gate closure is to reduce traffic ingress/egress and support pupils
while they are leaving the school site at the end of the school day.

We trust parents/carers will understand and support us with this change.

If parents/carers do have an appointment in school during any of the above
times, we recommend that alternative ways of travelling to school are
considered or that safe parking is sought in the locality. The pedestrian
gates will remain open to accept visitors on foot.

September 2018 Update

It is pleasing to report that the planning permission for our new £15million school building has been granted and we are now able to share some of the plans with you.

This new building will not only have a positive impact on our existing pupils, but those for generations to come as well as our wider community users.

The building will be home to our STEAM subjects
Science
Technology
Engineering
Arts
Mathematics

The stunning four storey building will also house new sports facilities.

We are very fortunate that the building construction site will be separate from the current school buildings, and the education of the pupils will not be affected.
