North Beckton’s Building Renovation
Building work has commenced at North Beckton Primary School. The redevelopment project is set to complete in April 2020, and will enhance provision for all pupils, including those with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities (PMLD).
The new facilities will be accessible to children across a spectrum of needs; all classrooms will be wheelchair friendly, and specialist learning spaces will be designed for pupils requiring assistance.
The new unit will be made up of one large classroom and a number of feeder classrooms. Facilities will also include a sensory room, as well as areas for physiotherapy, Place2Be counselling and music therapy.
Alison Helm, headteacher at North Beckton, said, “We are committed to making our school a place where all students can thrive with their education in a positive, supportive environment.”
The school’s motto, “We all Belong,” epitomizes the school’s commitment to inclusive practice. By positioning the new PMLD space at the heart of the school, it emphasises its centrality to the culture of school life at North Beckton.
