Children at Sidbury Primary school are benefiting from a revamp of the building.

The school has a new purpose-built classroom and a spacious, covered area of decking, for both work and play.

The decked area has been designed in such a way that all three of the adjoining classrooms can access it.

Headteacher Charlotte Hill said: “It means all the children in Early Years and Key Stage One can now access indoor 
and outdoor activities at all times.”

She said the purpose-built classroom, used by the Early Years Foundation Stage, has floor-to-ceiling windows and has been decorated in a simple, natural way to give the 
children a calm learning environment.

“The new space allows the children to access various activities and the parents are overjoyed with it,” she said, adding that parents had done some “fantastic” fundraising to buy new play equipment.

The official opening date of the facilities will be announced soon.
