The Great Lime Tree Felling

1

An update from the Digital Leaders

Lately lots of things have been happening around Saltford School:

  • The massive lime tree that has been at Saltford for a very long time has been chopped down to make room for six new classrooms.
  • The building work will start very soon, it is planned to be finished by late 2017.
  • Last year the school council approved the plans for the classrooms.
  • They will replace NB, NS temporary classrooms as well as ED, SEH, RJ and NJ which are all due for replacement.
  • There will also be a new and improved EYFS play area. Saltford won £25,000 for this.
  • SEH, RJ, ED and NJ classes will be pulled down to leave room for a new playground.

Part of the lime tree has gone and we will use the remains for the reflective garden as bark chippings and seating.

Welcome to The Big Build Blog!

Welcome to our brand new blog, where we hope to keep you up to date with all the latest developments on the building of 6 new classrooms.

This blog will be a space for the children to share their experiences as the next version of Saltford Primary School takes shape.

We hope it will also provide a record for future Saltford pupils to look back on and see how the school as they know it came to be.

Look out for our first update on the ‘Great Lime Tree Felling’, coming soon.
