A Beautiful New Look for Old Basing Infant School
We have been making some improvements to Old Basing Infant School over the summer.
Like all well-used properties, the site has some slightly tired looking corners and some ineffective, problematic spots. A team of staff, governors and volunteers began working hard to put an extensive plan into action 2 years ago, which aimed to greatly improve multiple aspects of the way children, staff, parents and visitors see, and use, the school and its grounds. So far we have:
Over the summer we have:
If you haven’t already visited our Landscape Strategy page on the school website, we encourage you to take a look. There will be more exciting improvements to follow the work listed above.
We hope to make our school the most valuable asset to the local community that it can be! If you have any ideas or suggestions that you think the school would like to hear, please do let us know. In a few years’ time, it is very much hoped that an extra building will be constructed at the school, within the trees which run adjacent to the main school car park. This building would provide an important additional multi-purpose teaching and learning space and a great home for our extended services, but would also hopefully be available to hire for villagers to use for classes, groups and parties etc. The school will provide a majority of the funds for this project, but hopes to ask for financial assistance from local businesses and supporters too. We are currently seeking help
from anyone with Grant Application experience, or anybody with fundraising experience (particularly ‘Crowdfunding’) to join our team... might you be able to help us? Know someone who could? We’d LOVE to hear from you! Thank you!
Please contact Angela Simmons, Chair of the Governors’ Resources Committee, via the school office if you are interested in helping us
