Value – £9,000,000
The development of this new Primary School caters for 39 FTE nursery pupils, 630 primary pupils aged 4 – 11 in KS1 and KS2 organised in three classes in each seven year group. The new classrooms exceed the BB99 recommended size to achieve the London or Borough of Barking & Dagenham (LBB&D) ‘pedagogy’ with a minimum class size of 70m² enhancing dialogic teaching for 30 pupils. The school is to be an ‘extended school’ operating for pupils between 7.30am and 6pm each weekday and for the wider community up to 11pm including weekends and school holidays. To enable this some areas such as halls, playing fields, hard play areas, some classrooms and ICT are arranged to encourage easy access.
The design and construction of this project required the application of good communication skills.
