Construction Traffic

Although our lovely new school is now up and running, we are very aware that we are sited within a construction development that is very much a work in progress. I have asked our teachers and nursery staff to constantly reinforce road safety messages and to encourage our children to remain alert to their surroundings at all times. This is also something we will speak about through our assembly programme.


A new notice at the entrance to the Maidenhill development requests all construction traffic to refrain from entering the development between the key school travel times of 8.30-9.15 and 2.45-3.30. I would be very grateful if you could alert me to any infringement of these restrictions in order that I can share concerns with the developers on site.

Open Afternoon for children and parents- Friday 16th August

After months of preparation, we are almost ready for the first day of term. To allow children and parents to visit the school and to meet our staff prior to Monday 19th, we have organised an open afternoon on Friday 16th, 2pm- 4.30pm.


Mr McDonald will lead tours of the building and playground at 2pm, 2.45pm and 3.30pm. In between times children will be able to visit their own classroom or the nursery playroom. Last entry will be at 4pm.


We look forward to seeing our Maidenhill children and parents again.
