One Step Closer to a New School for Christchurch

January 15, 2013

Christchurch will get one step closer to its brand new primary school on Friday, with a special ‘sod-cutting’ ceremony to mark the start of building work.

Teachers and pupils from Christchurch Infants School, as well as County Councillors and representatives from Seddon Construction, will celebrate the start of building works with a special ceremony, marking the first patch of earth to be cut from the site of the new school.

As part of a raft of measures to ensure there are enough primary school places for children in Burton, Christchurch Infants School is being turned into a primary school, with a new school being built on the existing site.

To minimise disruption and to ensure the building project represents great value for money for Staffordshire taxpayers, the current school will remain until the new one is complete.  It will then be demolished to make way for additional outdoor playing space.

The new school will accommodate 315 pupils and will combine state of the art facilities with innovative design in order to become a focal point for the community.

Headteacher of Christchurch Vicky Anderson said:  “We would like to thank Councillor Liz Staples for attending the ceremony and Seddon for their hospitality.

“We are so pleased to see the new build underway as it marks the start of a very exciting time for the school’s future.  This development is much needed and we would like to thank Councillor Staples, Staffordshire County Council and all the people who have supported us in making this happen.  The children enjoy watching the builders being busy creating their new school and things are certainly moving quickly.  We can’t wait to see the finished design.”

Local County Councillor Liz Staples said:  “This really is a fantastic opportunity for Christchurch and the wider community, and I’m pleased to see diggers finally on site.  A lot of work has gone into planning primary school places in Burton to cope with the increase in pupil numbers, and this latest development will not only benefit pupils and parents, but also members of the wider community in Burton.  The start of the building work marks a start to a new future for pupils and the community alike.”

Seddon Construction managing director Jonathan Seddon said: “This inspiring project will provide pupils and teaching staff with the latest educational facilities in a purpose-built, energy-efficient building. Our team is thrilled to be involved in helping deliver what is set to be an important new community landmark.”
