Godinton Primary School

Godinton's Big Build

Over the next few months, we will be having the oldest part of our school roof replaced. Whilst the building work takes place, our Year R and 1 classrooms will move into modular classrooms which will be sited on the school field. Some of our office spaces will also be relocated too.

The arrival of diggers on to the school site has already created curiosity and a buzz of excitement.

We will regularly update this page with photos of the project so that the children can see what is happening.



Half-Term Week - Our modular classrooms have arrived!

There was another buzz of excitement this week as the children return to school after the half-term holidays as it was clear that our roof replacement building project had progressed further. The children can now see what the modular classrooms look like from the outside and the Yr R and 1 children have walked around to the field to find out which classroom they will be in.

Miss Talbot, Mrs Partridge and Mrs Williams are also moving out of their offices and into a temporary offices.  Can you work out where they will be?

The classrooms arrived in sections on many lorries and a crane lifted them into position on the school field.


Week beginning 24th May

The contractors have been busy this week preparing the site for the delivery of the modular classrooms in half term.  This week we have seen lots of lorries delivering materials for the road, lots of measuring and  digging of holes to prepare the base for our modular classrooms. We have also seen a huge lorry with a crane attached to deliver the site cabin. The site cabin is important so that the contractors can have a break after all their hard work.


Mr Lund has taken lots of photos so everyone can see what is happening. Have a look at the photos to see how our BIG BUILD is coming along!


After half-term, we hope to show you some photos of the modular classrooms.  Apparently they are delivered in sections and then joined together!




Week beginning 17th May

The children arrived in school to find that part of their field had been fenced off and that some diggers had arrived on site.  The photos below show the area where the modular classrooms will be.

We are lucky that we have such a large field as it means that we still have lots of space to play.

Soon there will be a temporary road laid here so the modular classrooms can be delivered.
