Plans for move Newark school to Middlebeck
Plans to move a Newark infant school to Middlebeck were shared with parents at the end of term.
Christchurch C of E Infant school made a few announcement in a special assembly on Friday.
It celebrated not only the retirement of Claire Meese – the school diocesan director of education – but also to reveal the school's future plans with the children and parents.
Executive headteacher of Christchurch, Jon Brown, said: "On Friday we held a very special celebration assembly to celebrate all the fantastic learning happening at Christ Church C of E Infant and Nursery School.
"We also had the great honour of being able to unveil and share the initially plans for our new build to lots of excited children and parents with Claire Meese and Tony Roberts.
"ChristChurch will become a through primary school in September 2020, and we will move to our fantastic state of the art new build in September 2021 on the Middlebeck development. This is a very exciting time for the whole school community and we are thrilled about the journey ahead."
The moving of the schools will be a gradual one, with the current year one and year two pupils staying at the existing site and moving up through the school, and then moving across to the new Middlebeck site in September 2021 to be the first class of year four pupils.
These pupils will then be the first year five and six classes in 2022 and 2023 respectively.
