Karen Scanlon from the Ovenden Initiative and Community Warden Ced Oakley visited Moorside Community School Ovenden to talk about setting up a “Friends of Moorside School”

With exciting new development plans to build a new school on the playing fields, once completed the old school would be demolished and turned into new playing fields. The new school would be of a smaller modular design that can be extended if needed.

At the last Ovenden Ward Forum Councillors advised that they had spoken to Stuart Smith, Director of Children and Young People’s Services, regarding the progress of the work being done to secure the new building of Moorside Community Primary School.

The process from start to finish should be approximately 20-24 months and the construction company who have won the tender are a construction framework called YOR build, based in the Yorkshire and Humber region.

The new friends group will look at raising funds for the new school to ensure that the children of Moorside get the best facilities available

If you are a parent, grandparent, carer or friend and would like to be involved please pass your details onto Sue Frankland School Business Manager at Moorside School or go along to a Coffee morning being held in the annex building on Friday 29 April 2016 from 8.45am and have a chat with Karen and Ced or email
