Council awards contact on Ponteland Development

Press release from Northumberland County Council @ https://www.northumberland.gov.uk/News/2018/Oct/Council-awards-contact-on-Ponteland-Development.aspx
Council awards contact on Ponteland Development
02 Oct 2018



Northumberland County Council has awarded Kier Construction the landmark development to create a combined schools and leisure campus in Ponteland.

The project will consist of state of the art facilities included within two brand new school buildings and a fantastic new leisure facility to include; swimming pool, fitness suite, community facilities, badminton courts, Clip N Climb, soft play, outdoor sports fields, a full size 3G pitch and a library. The Development will also see a new build fire station for Ponteland.

Peter Jackson, Leader of Northumberland County Council said: “I am delighted the contract has been awarded to Kier Construction who are local to North East and we are confident that we can now guarantee the best possible value for money for our residents and communities as well as growing the local economy through the construction contract. We know the community was delighted with the approved design for the development and ensuring top quality learning environments are available for our young people is a key priority for us. This exciting project will provide modern facilities for students for years into the future.”

Councillor Cath Homer, Cabinet Member for Culture, Arts, Leisure and Tourism said, “The investment into the schools and leisure in Ponteland will provide a state-of-the-art facilities for the community and an excellent learning environment for our young people.”

Brian McQuade, managing director of Kier Construction Scotland & North-East England, said: “Working collaboratively with Northumberland County Council, we are looking forward to delivering the Ponteland development that will bring huge benefits to the local area. We have a strong track record in delivering first-class educational and local community buildings and our aim is to create, with the client team, learning environments in which students can thrive. Throughout the duration of the project, we will work with the local supply chain and look to offer training and job opportunities as well as engage with residents to ensure that they see local benefits.”

The development will see the existing Ponteland leisure centre demolished and replaced with a new build leisure centre and a modern secondary school and primary school. Other schools across the partnership have also benefited from significant investment in their buildings as part of the scheme.

While the 11 week tendering process has taken place, the local authority has ensured preparatory work continued on site. Tree pruning and service investigations have been carried out alongside a period of newt-trapping in order to safely re-house any protected species.

In addition, work is well underway to expand the accommodation on the existing high school, to ensure the temporary accommodation can be provided to accommodate the additional secondary pupils in September 2019.

The new development is scheduled for completion by September 2020.

Ministerial backing for new Darras Hall Primary School

Ministerial backing for new Darras Hall Primary School
08 Oct 2018



The Secretary of State for Education has made a visit to a newly built primary school in Northumberland today.

The Rt Hon Damian Hinds MP dropped in at the new £5.8million Darras Hall Primary School - meeting pupils, teachers and politicians - and unveiled a plaque to declare the school officially open.

Mr Hinds was given a tour of the school and saw children working in their new classrooms. Pupils then sang their school song before he was invited to unveil a plaque and say a few words to the assembled school and visitors.

The new primary school, built by Northumberland County Council, features state of the art facilities including 15 classrooms, ‘learning streets’ on both the ground and first floors, two multi use studios, a hall that can be used for both school and community events and a library and reading area.

An outside classroom and a wildlife and garden area will allow the children to grow their own vegetables. The school is also set to have a playing field and multi use outdoor play area, which are due for completion in November.

Cllr Wayne Daley, cabinet member for children’s services and deputy leader of Northumberland County Council welcomed the Secretary of State to the school saying: “We were delighted that Mr Hinds was able to join us today and to officially declare this fantastic new school open. This major investment in education in the county has created great new learning and teaching environments for pupils and staff.”

During the visit Cllr Daley took the opportunity to discuss some key issues with the Government Minister, including improving educational outcomes in the region, rural schools, and how Northumberland County Council is working with both academies and maintained schools on school improvement.

They discussed the challenges faced in education in the county and opportunities available within Northumberland, as well as the National Funding Formula and how the council wishes to work with the Regional Schools Commissioner to improve education.

Cllr Daley added: “We discussed our desire to have local solutions to meet local needs. As a council we want what is in the best for all young people in Northumberland - regardless of whether they attend an academy or a maintained school.

“I also highlighted to the minister the pressure on our SEND services and our wish to ensure that we have enough suitable places for all children regardless of their individual needs. We had very constructive discussions and I hope that we can work together to ensure that all children in Northumberland, as well as in the wider North of Tyne area, have access to the best possible education.”

Secretary of State for Education Damian Hinds said: “I’m in the North East today to unveil a £24 million investment that will help further unlock the immense talent of young people in this region. It was a pleasure to see the infectious enthusiasm of teachers and pupils at Darras Hall Primary School and I look forward to seeing them flourish in the coming years.”

The investment into Darras Hall Primary School is part of a wider £57m investment by Northumberland County Council in education and leisure across the Ponteland partnership, which includes a new leisure centre, library and primary and secondary schools set to be built on the site of the existing leisure centre.

Ceremony marks new school opening

Press release from North Tyneside Council @ https://my.northtyneside.gov.uk/news/21959/ceremony-marks-new-school-opening
Ceremony marks new school opening
10 October 2018



A new state-of-the-art primary school has been officially opened as part of a memorable ceremony.

Children, their families, teaching staff and VIP guests all joined in the celebrations as part of a special event to mark the opening of the new Backworth Park Primary School building.

The school has relocated from its existing site on Station Road, to a new location south of the golf course, within the new housing estate known as Backworth Park.

With its state-of-the-art classrooms, improved outdoor play space, a multi-use games area and a beautiful garden, the new accommodation provides the school with a larger capacity, and space to expand in the future, if necessary.

Cllr Peter Earley, cabinet member for Children, Young People and Learning, said: “I’m delighted that we could be here today to mark the opening of the new Backworth Park Primary School. The new building is absolutely fantastic and these new facilities will allow the school’s staff to build on the outstanding support they already provide these pupils with. North Tyneside’s fantastic education system has received such praise over the past few years, with a number of our schools named among the best in the country – and I’m delighted that we can build on this with another state-of-the-art building.”

Barbara Middleton, Executive Headteacher at Backworth Park Primary School, added: “Today has been a very special day for all of us here at the school - celebrating the official opening of our wonderful new building. Everyone, from the staff and governors, to the pupils and their parents, has been looking forward to moving into this building and the opportunities it will bring – especially for sports and outdoor provision. I’d like to say a huge thank-you to everyone who has been involved in getting us to this point – it’s been an amazing journey and I’m delighted that we have been able to mark this day in such a special way.”

Excited about the new building, nine-year-old Thomas said: “I really like it, it’s bigger and better and all my friends like it too. The outside is really spacious too; we all like to play football and the field is massive.”

Alan Campbell, MP for Tynemouth, and the Duke of Northumberland were on hand to help mark the official opening of the new building, with the MP unveiling a commemorative plaque to celebrate the opening. Speaking after the unveiling, Alan said: “I was pleased to open the new school, Backworth Park Primary. The new school is a first class facility which will provide an outstanding learning environment for local youngsters. In light of the new housing in this area it was a much needed addition and also provides access to valuable community facilities.”

As part of the ceremony, the Duke of Northumberland buried a time capsule on the school’s land to be opened in 2043.

The Duke, who wrote a letter to be included in the children’s time capsule, added: “I am delighted to be here today to mark the opening of Backworth Park Primary School. Northumberland Estates has been much involved in recent development here in Backworth so we were delighted to assist when asked to provide a suitable site for the construction of this new school.

“The Estate, and indeed the Percy family, have a long tradition of supporting education in the North East, dating back many centuries, and it is great to be able to continue this tradition here. Any school is at the heart of its community, and I would therefore like to take this opportunity to wish the staff and the children all the very best in their endeavours and I hope they, and indeed future generations, will enjoy and benefit from these wonderful new premises.”

In July 2014, the council’s cabinet agreed that officers could start negotiations for the new site and property. Following a deferral for 1 year, due to delays to new housing developments, Metnor Construction of Killingworth was appointed by Northumberland Estates, to begin the construction phase of this exciting development.

Formed in 2002, Metnor Construction Ltd, is one of four divisions within the Metnor Group and achieved recognition at the 2017 Constructing Excellence Awards (CENE) for outstanding economic growth having nearly doubled its turnover from £35 million to £60 million during 2015-2016.

School extension will boost special needs education

Press release from Northumberland County Council @ https://www.northumberland.gov.uk/News/2018/Oct/School-extension-will-boost-special-needs-educatio.aspx
School extension will boost special needs education
30 Oct 2018



A school extension which will provide additional places for children with special needs in Northumberland has opened this week.

Northumberland County Council has funded the over £1m extension to Hexham Priory, a school which provides educational support to children with severe learning difficulties and complex learning needs. The extension has provided an additional three classrooms and associated ancillary spaces and will allow additional capacity to ensure there is increased provision available locally for children with complex learning difficulties.

Councillor Wayne Daley, cabinet member for children’s services at Northumberland County Council said, “I am delighted to see the extension to Hexham Priory School open and being used by the school.

“Our focus is on creating safe and enjoyable learning environments for all pupils in Northumberland and these additional classrooms and ancillary spaces will go a long way towards continually delivering a high level of education to special educational needs pupils in the county. This forms part of the council’s wider commitment to increasing the amount of places for children needing extra support and we really value the immense amount of work done by our special educational needs schools in supporting our children.”

Hexham Priory School is run by the Eden Academy Trust. Head teacher at the school, Liz Davison, said: “This extension is a great addition to our school. It enables us to increase the roll at the school which is so important given the shortage of special school places in the area. It also affords us the opportunity to further enhance our curriculum through the additional space we have. The pupils are looking forward to returning to school after half term into their new classrooms.”

The extension has been built by Kier Construction.
