James Peacock Infant & Nursery School opens a new classroom

High praise from parents staff and pupils

The official opening of a new state-of-the-art classroom with brand new ICT facilities at James Peacock Infant & Nursery School built by Robert Woodhead Ltd took place on Friday 1 February. The opening included the cutting of a ribbon to open the classroom by the Chair of Governors, Charles Rayner. “It is an absolute pleasure to give these children the best possible start to their educational careers,” commented Mr. Rayner.

Also in attendance was Councillor Reg Adair, the County Councillor for Ruddington, who personally funded the ICT equipment for the new classroom. The kit includes the latest computers and interactive whiteboards.

Richard Waldron, Headteacher at the School, said, “Thanks go to Robert Woodhead Limited and the team for their hard work. In recent years the school has grown and at the same time so has its reputation in the community. This new classroom will help meet the needs of the community by providing an excellent space for education. The design of the classroom has meant that we’ve now got more space in the adjoining hall for assemblies and other school activities.”

In fact, Robert Woodhead Ltd has been working with Richard Waldron on developments at the School since 2006 when the local builders added a new link corridor. The two latest projects have been procured through the EMPA (East Midlands Property Alliance) Framework which has resulted in considerable efficiency savings for the school.

Glenn Slater, Business Development Director at Robert Woodhead Ltd explains, “Over the years, we’ve completed four construction projects at the James Peacock Infant & Nursery School. We know the building and staff very well and we work as considerately as possible. The aim is always to minimise disruption so that Richard and his colleagues at the school can get on with the important job of teaching”

Glenn continues, The fact that the school has been consistently satisfied with four projects is a credit to the site managers and project team.  The procurement of the latest scheme through EMPA enabled our team to get involved early and find a value for money solution for the school.”
