Playground Equipment Repair (Week Commencing 8th October 2018)

Friday 5th October 2018


Playground Equipment Repair w/c Monday 8th October 2018


Dear Parents/Carers,


Please be aware that the repair work to the wooden playground equipment will take place during the week commencing the 8th October 2018.  This means that there will be work vehicles and contractors on site throughout the week and your children may talk about slightly different arrangements to playtimes and lunchtimes.  All is in hand and rigorous risk assessments are in place.  


After children have come to school in the usual way, the playground will be cordoned off with metal fencing so that the vehicles and materials can be brought onto site.   We ask for your support in ensuring that your children are closely supervised on arrival to school, prompt arrival at school so that the work can begin promptly, and prompt collection at the end of the day so that the work can recommence (no vehicles will be on the playground at collection and drop off times).


If your child is in after school care, or an after school club, we will escort to the main gate following your phone call to say you have arrived.  If your child is in breakfast club, they will need to use the main office entrance for the week and be signed in in the usual way.


We hope that this much-needed refurbishment of the playground will greatly add to the children’s activities.  The funding has been utilised from Sports’ Funding Premium and the Tesco grant will be used to decorate the area afterwards with signs and playground games.


Yours sincerely,



Mrs Tomlinson
