LITTLE learners and their parents now have new classrooms after improvements at a primary school.

A new early years unit has been built at Lawefield Lane Primary School during the summer.

For the first time nursery and reception children will be taught under the same roof.

And it means there is more room for parents to come into school to join in with their children’s education and other adult classes.

Headteacher Craig Batley said: “The governing body of the school and the staff were really keen to develop and improve the provision for children, especially our youngest pupils.

“In doing so we have also vastly improved the quality of the classrooms and we have created a new outdoor area for the children to enjoy.”

The children also have new cloakrooms and toilets after the redevelopment work was carried out at the school, on Lawefield Lane.

Mr Batley said: “The building that the nursery used to be in is now going to used for adult and community classes.

“Both the governors and the school have a commitment to do more work with parents and the wider community.”

Every school day different classes are held including Stay and Play.

Mr Batley said: “By welcoming parents into school, they know more about what their children are learning and everyone benefits.”

In July the school’s Early Years provision was rated by Ofsted inspectors as outstanding.

Mr Batley said: “We hope the new facilities will allow us to move even further forward.”
