Poppyfield Primary Academy

Client: Entrust
Location: Hednesford, Cannock
Value: £5.2m

Approach

We were appointed by Staffordshire County Council through their Construction Projects Framework to undertake the Design and Construction of a new Primary School to accommodate 240 pupils. The new Academy will open in September 2019 and includes large classrooms, individual learning spaces, offices and a multi-functional hall for sporting activities and dining.  The School has been designed to meet the increasing need for school places from the adjacent housing developments.

Approach

Construction

We have worked closely with Staffordshire County Council, Entrust and Victoria Academies Trust to develop the scheme.  Working together, we were able to bring significant benefits to the final school, including safe access from the surrounding residential estate and an enhanced layout providing a practical and comfortable learning environment. Located within the heart of a large new housing development we have implemented a project specific traffic management plan ensuring safe access routes.Regular communication through residents newsletters and opportunities for site tours, ensure everybody is fully informed about the programmed works.

 

Construction

Finished Build

Once Complete, Poppyfield Primary Academy will provide a safe and comfortable learning environment whilst blending seamlessly into it’s surrounding residential estate.  Andrew Morrish, Victoria Academies Trust CEO, said: “We are very pleased to be working again with Staffordshire County Council and building new relationships with our Contractor G F Tomlinson through the Staffordshire Framework. The benefits to children and families will be enormous and we shall work in partnership with the community to deliver an impressive school, which will provide exceptional education.”
