PUPILS and teachers at Ingoldmells Primary School are celebrating the completion of an extensive, £1.1 million programme of improvements to enhance learning opportunities and engagement with the local community.
The school now boasts new classrooms, a sports hall and library as well as smaller group spaces and a staff room thanks to funding received from Lincolnshire County Council through the Primary Capital Programme.
Headteacher Emma Hadley said: “We feel incredibly lucky to have the new building, it is a wonderful opportunity to enhance learning for our pupils.
“It is an absolutely fabulous facility, which gives us lots of extra space and the children are all loving it.
“We’ve been really fortunate because we’ve always had good school buildings, but with these improvements we can further add to what we offer to our pupils and the wider community.”
Snow White officiated the grand opening ceremony last Tuesday by cutting the ribbon and singing some of the songs she will performing at the Embassy Theatre this Christmas.
Parents and local councillors were then invited to take a look around the impressive new facilities to see what the school now had to offer its pupils.
The new buildings feature a full complement of modern equipment to aid all manner of educational activities.
An impressive climbing wall in the hall provides new sporting opportunities for the children, who are also able to use the additional space for drama workshops and the new library, science and IT rooms all feature the best new technology to modernise the learning environment.
Community groups have also been invited to make use of the new facility.
