Beleaguered school granted permission for “distinctive and welcoming” new reception
Good news for those still enrolled at Colnbrook C of E: the school has been granted planning permission for a new entrance and reception area.
The school believes the current entrance is “not distinctive to visitors” and, leading directly to one of the school’s main circulation corridors, creates a security risk in respect to providing a safe environment for pupils and staff.
The planning application said:
The new extension will provide a new clear and focal welcoming reception point for visitors and a security buffer space for pupils and staff.
The extension will also see the existing staff room enlarged to provide better facilities for staff. The current building was erected in 1965 but extended several times.
Colnbrook C of E became part of Slough and East Berkshire C of E Multi Academy Trust (SEBMAT) last year.
Planning permission was granted last week and the project must be completed within 3 years.
