As the current school year draws to a close, construction work is very nearly complete for the ‘new’ Beacon View Primary Academy.
Excitement is growing amongst pupils and staff as the completion date for their brand new building steadily approaches – signifying a fresh start for the whole school community. They will say goodbye to their current building this summer, ready to move into the new state-of-the-art modular design next term.
A lot of the work this month has been internal and with the vinyl floor down some of the fixed furniture has been fitted. The tape and jointing of the walls has been finished and much of the joinery work is almost done. An example classroom has been completed to allow the staff to experience the finished article and start to plan how their classroom will look for the next academic year.
The main hall is progressing well and 95% of the roof is completed plus the external cedar cladding is going up.
The new building is expected to be ready next term, at which point Phase 2 – the demolition of the current school building – will begin. The plans have been welcomed by parents, governors and the local community and are on permanent display in the school reception.
