During the last few weeks during our enforced school closure, we have been working behind the scenes to not only complete existing projects with restriction guidelines, but prepare for our next developments for Ivanhoe College. We are delighted to be able to share the following update:

 

ROOF INSULATION

After a 6 month programme through a very rainy winter season, we are pleased to confirm that the second phase of our roof insulation works are completed. Parents visiting school will see that all scaffold has now been removed and the roof to whole school building has now been improved by the addition of an insulating waterproof layer which will improve the lifespan of the building, improve internal climate control throughout and make us increasingly energy efficient. This has been a significant investment in our buildings, enabled by successfully securing Condition Improvement Fund grants and we thank Central Roofing and E3Cube for completing this work for us, safely, on time and on budget.

 

NEW CLASSROOM DEVELOPMENT

Following our very successful replacement of a wooden classroom with a new modular build from Wernick Buildings last year, we are able to share the exciting news that we have recently gained planning permission from NWLDC to build a second matching classroom next to this. Again this has been funded through securing a buildings grant application and works are due to commence in July with our new classroom completed ready for the new school year. We will be working with Wernick Buildings on this second classroom and will share photos as the site develops over the coming weeks.

 

NEXT STEP PLANS

Application for building improvement grants are made annually to the ESFA central funding agency and we currently await news on our latest grant applications. In an older building there is always work to do, and if successful, we would love to modernise some of our heating system and invest in ventilation upgrades for our very busy school kitchen.

 

We can also announce that we have taken the first tentative steps with the aim of expanding and improving our indoor sports facilities on site. Following extensive feasibility reviews supported by colleagues in school facility planning from Leicestershire County Council we have recently submitted a planning application to build a Sports Hall with 2 additional classroom spaces. We would love to have better indoor sports space for our students and will keep you informed as our plans progress.

 

PLANNED HEALTH and SAFETY COMPLIANCE WORKS

As with all public buildings, at Ivanhoe we have an annual cycle of planned preventative maintenance alongside health and safety checks to keep our buildings safe for the whole school. During lockdown we have been maintaining our schedule as much as possible and are now planning for all our normal summer checks in readiness for the new school year. Alongside normal works, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are also looking at aspects such as signage, one-way systems,cleaning routines and so on, in order that when school returns, our facilities meet all the latest guidelines and are a safe environment for all.
