09 December 2019 – Information Update
Asset Management Works Update
Widows restoration works will begin in the front corridor from Monday 9the December until we break for the Christmas holiday. 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 at the end of term 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 will begin Monday 6th January. It is envisaged that the large exterior windows in the dining hall will take 5 days to refurbish. For the duration of exterior window works the dining room will be closed to all staff and Children. This means that the Dining Hall will be closed from 6th January until Friday 10th January. Sandwiches be provided instead of meals for all children on Thursday 9th and Friday 10th January while the dining room is closed.
When the dining hall re-opens on Monday 13th 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 14th January with the hall returning to full unimpeded service on Wednesday 15th 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.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this work will cause.
