Better access for children, parents and carers

Recently fire drills drew attention to a slight but unwanted delay during evacuation. At the end of the school day there have always been access issues.

We have widened the steps leading from the Junior playground to the Reception classrooms. From a safety persepctive this means we will be evacuate children at greater speed than previously. Whilst the evacuation times have been reasonable, we always strive to address any safety issues extremely thoroughly and feel far happier with the improvements. For parents and carers, the wider steps will hopefully make life a little easier at the end of the day - not to mention during the summer fete!
