Building Update – As you may be aware, the contractors have finally started work on our much-needed extension. Unfortunately, they have encountered problems with some structural tree roots for our protected tree, which has caused slight delays. However, the project is still due for completion during Summer. We apologise for any inconvenience caused throughout the build process and we would like to sincerely thank you for your understanding and support.The purpose built extension will enable us to provide wrap-around care provisions, which will reduce congestion and parking issues outside school. Throughout the school day, the new extension will be utilised as an additional teaching space and a break out/withdrawal room for interventions, etc. We are very pleased that school is currently fully subscribed, with a waiting list for places; therefore the new extension is also designed to provide much needed additional space for our children.
Book Exchange – At Roughlee, we are very big on promoting reading for pleasure. Therefore, we have purchased a new ‘Book Exchange’! We will be placing a variety of reading books into the exchange and we would like to invite the local people to take, swap and donate (appropriate) books with us.
Garden Appeal – We would like to say a big thank you to all the parents, children and staff who helped to do a fantastic job on getting our school garden ready for Spring/Summer. I’m sure you will all agree, it is looking fabulous. We are always looking for volunteers to help with our garden so if you can spare any time at all, you would be most welcome to pick up a trowel and get stuck in!
Coronation Celebration Day – On Friday 5th May 2023, we are holding a Coronation Celebration Event in school. We are inviting parents and the local people to come and join us for a ‘street party’ from 2.15pm, where there will be food, music and lots of fun!
