Poppyfield Primary Academy

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

Approach

We were appointed by Staffordshire County Council through the Staffordshire Framework to undertake the Design and Construction of a 1 form entry Primary School to accommodate one class per year group, totalling 240 pupils, with the aim of growing year-on-year up to Year 6. As part of Staffordshire County Council’s and the Academies requirements, the new facility needed to be complete and ready for the new Academic year. The new large classrooms, individual learning space, offices and a multi-functional hall was essential to meet the local demand for school places due to new housing developments surrounding the school site.

Approach

Construction

We worked closely with Staffordshire County Council, Entrust and Victoria Academies Trust stakeholders. We developed the project with the school’s key requirements in mind, ensuring safe access from the surrounding residential estate and an enhanced layout for practical and comfortable learning environment. Located within the heart of a large housing estate still under construction, we implemented a robust traffic management plan detailing safe access and egress routes and scheduled deliveries around the adjacent contractors. We maintained regular communication with surrounding residents, ensuring  they were fully informed of progress and planned activities.

 

Construction

Finished Build

The new Poppyfield Primary Academy now provides a safe and comfortable learning environment whilst blending seamlessly into its 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 as work starts on this exciting new project.
“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.”
