2017 will be an exciting year for New Close School because we will shortly be joining the successful Acorn Education Trust as one of their Academy schools. We have already started to introduce the changes that will rapidly improve the learning and outcomes for our children.
By Christmas children in FS2 and Rabbit class will have a brand new, secure Outdoor Learning Area, and we will enhance this further by adding exciting new equipment to stimulate their imaginations.
Also in the pipeline are plans to overhaul and upgrade our IT learning provision and to redecorate and refresh the whole school.
Meanwhile, we welcome this term Mrs Southby who is teaching our year 4/5 class, and Mrs Kace, who joins Miss Brown to teach our year 3/4 class. In addition we are now running extra-curricular clubs on 4 days a week for KS2 children.
