Moving into the new building – Parents & Carers we need your help on 30th & 31st August 2017
We are very excited that our new building is nearly ready for us to move in, to start school on 11 September, but first we need your help!
We have furniture and equipment arriving from storage from 29th August, and so would really appreciate help from volunteers on Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st August to help move everything from the storage crates into the new classrooms.
This will include moving boxes, chairs and whatever you can help with. Due to the nature of the building still being a building site, we would ask to avoid bringing children if possible, as we cannot be responsible for their safety on site.
If you are able to help us, please turn up from 10am at school in clothes that you don’t mind getting dusty. Thanks in advance!
Please join us for a ‘Garden Party’ on 1st September from 3:30pm – 5pm. Our catering company will be supplying food but please bring picnic blankets and anything else you might like, as we will aim to be outside on the new spacious playing field! Members of staff will be attending and everyone is welcome, including siblings. We look forward to seeing you then!
Welcome to Watling Park School, a new primary free school which opened with two Reception classes in September 2015. The school will grow organically to its full capacity of 420 pupils in 2021.
We are proud of the high-quality education this new school offers along with the before and after school clubs which enhance the opportunity for our pupils. Pupils at Watling Park School are nurtured and guided through school life; we aim to stimulate and inspire our children, develop their interests and equip them with lifelong learning skills.
Everything we do is underpinned by our school values: I CARE
The school is located at Pavilion Way, Burnt Oak HA8 9YA and is currently housed in temporary buildings on Pavilion Way whilst our permanent buildings are being built and we will be here for one more year. The new permanent building will be on the same site.
This new building will bring fresh investment into the area, not just for the pupils at the school, but also the local community. The proposal is to transform the current hardcourt area into a 3G pitch as a multi-use facility. The new state-of-the-art facilities will also be available to the local community outside school hours and the school is committed to working with the local community to maximise community use of the facility. It is the school’s ambition to offer free or low-cost community use of the facilities to local groups for at least 2 sessions a week, with access every evening and weekend.
A timeline for the new building works and additional temporary classrooms rooms can be found on our building works page.
We offer exciting opportunities for ambitious teachers to join our expanding school and to develop their own careers, with support from myself and senior leaders. If you are interested in working in the school, please do contact us directly. We would be delighted to hear from you.
