Asset Management Works Update
Infant Playground Gate
To facilitate works to the rear elevation of the school, the road safety barrier at the infant playground gate has had to be temporarily removed. To ensure the safety of all school users these playground gates will be locked during the school day until the barrier is re-instated.
Widows restoration works are progressing as planned. Corridor windows will be removed for refurbishment. All works on corridor windows will be shielded “boxed off” from other corridor activities. To facilitate this all corridor furniture (shelving, worktops etc) in the vicinity of works shielding will be removed while works take place. This is to ensure safe pedestrian passage of corridor users and to meet minimum standards required by H&S in the event of a fire. These works will cease temporarily to allow Hall window works to take precedence. They will resume again on completion of the hall works below.
Works to repair dining hall windows have been completed as planned. The school Dining hall is now fully operational and back in service. Exterior painting of windows in this area will be completed on Friday 17th January.
Works to repair Gym hall windows will begin Monday 20th January. It is envisaged that the large exterior windows in the Gym hall will take 5 days to refurbish. For the duration of exterior window works the Gym hall room will be closed to all staff and Children. Gym activities be moved to another location for the duration of these works.
When the Gym hall comes back into service on Monday 27th January there will be some disruption as workmen work on “hopper” internal windows. This work will take place on towers behind safety barriers. It is envisaged that hopper window works will be completed on Tuesday 28th January, with the Gym hall returning to full unimpeded service on Wednesday 29th January.
Scaffolding will be erected on the exterior west elevation (gym Hall window wall) of the school on Monday 27th January. Work on the roof of this area will begin 5 days later on Friday 31st January. It is not envisaged that this work will be service effecting as it does not border a playground area.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this work will cause.
