Flood Alleviation Scheme – Donnington 2018

Road Closures around the school. The map explains when the road will be shut and where- there will always be access but might change day to day.

I have attached a photo of the work schedule on St Winnifred’s Drive, but I will go through it with you.

  • We will carry out the work in stages to minimise disruption please see approximate programme below:
  • Manhole F at the junction of East Avenue/James Way on will commence construction on 23 July for three days
  • We will then start to lay the new sewer from manhole F to manhole E and the planned duration of this work is from 26 July – 7 August. After the pipe has been laid in each section it will be backfilled and tarmac.
  • Manhole E to manhole D – 10 August to 14 August.
  • Manhole E to manhole C – 17 August to 3 September. This is the section that will pass the junction of Leonards Close, this will be done during the school holidays.
  • Manhole C to manhole B – 6 September to 14 September
  • Manhole B to Manhole A – 19 September – 1 October

The road closure on St Winnifred’s Drive will remain in place while we carry out the connection of the new sewer into the existing network at the junction of East Avenue and this is planned for 1 October – 12 October.

Between 12 October – 19 October we will complete the final reinstatement of St Winnifred’s Drive.

Please note these dates may change depending on other utilities we may find underground.

Thank you all

More new Online Safety Resources

Latest news from Thinkuknow – July 2018

Summer is here! Just before many of you head off on a well-deserved break, here’s a heads up about a new Thinkuknow resource we hope many of you will find useful when planning for the start of next term.

Band Runner: new Thinkuknow game and website for 8-10 year olds

We’re delighted to say that Band Runner – our fun new runner-style game for 8-10 year olds – is now live on the Thinkuknow website.

The game features some familiar faces: Sam, Alfie and Ellie from the Play Like Share animations are continuing their adventures and helping children to build their knowledge, confidence and skills to stay safe from sexual abuse and other risks they might encounter online.

Band Runner is hosted on an all-new Thinkuknow website for 8-10 year olds.

A key area of the new site is the ‘Stay Safe’ zone where Sam, Ellie and Alfie share child-friendly advice based upon their adventures in the films. The zone is divided into six topic areas: Play, Like, Share, Chat , Lock, and Explore.

Children can visit the ‘Worried About Something?’ page which provides advice and support on how to get help if something worrying has happened online.

You can download the guidance for professionals, which includes a lesson plan on using Band Runner with children and young people here. The game and website can also be accessed by parents and carers with their children at home, and you can find information to share with parents and carers here.

Please note that Band Runner will replace our older 8-10s resource the Cyber Café. The Cyber Café will stay live here until 21st December 2018 to give you time to wrap up any work in which it features, at which point it will be retired for good.

We hope you enjoy Band Runner and the new site, and look forward to hearing your feedback.
