Estate management

This page is still under development, but we’ll be putting together a range of information to share with you about how we manage the school site and buildings.

We’ll also be sharing with you our maintenance plan for the next few years, and our plans for improving our facilities and increasing our floor area to match what would now be provided for a newly built school of our size. We’ll also share with you how we monitor health and safety issues and plan improved access and inclusion.

Not least we’ll also be sharing our plans to reduce our carbon footprint and go for net zero by our bicentenary.

Estate vision

We are moving to a new process in our management of the school estate. The first step in the process has been for the governing body to develop a strategic vision for the school site and the buildings and facilities on it.

The vision covers the period from 2024 to our bicentennary celebrations in 2033, nine years in whch we hope to transform our estate to meet the challenges of education in the twenty first century.

You can download and read the whole document, but the key points are the four objectives we have set ourselves:

  • To reduce the environmental impact of our use and occupation of the estate
  • To adapt our estate to the changing climate
  • To develop the estate by making provision for facilities which we lack
  • To become a more inclusive and equal community by making our estate fully accessible

The next step we will take is to carry out a strategic review, with external professional support to help us develop specific projects to meet our four objectives. As part of that process we will also consult parents, staff and the wider community.

Health and safety

The health and safety of everyone on our school estate is paramount for us as a school community.

As a voluntary controlled school, in which staff are employed by Hertfordshire County Council, the local authority has overall responsibility for health and safety in the school. Our health and safety policy follows the local authority’s model and you can read it by clicking on the button below. The policy has further hyperlinks to local authority and other guidance.
