On Thursday morning I visited Bankside Primary School again...

It was great to see my colleague Sarah Rutty again and to travel on the bus with the children up to the Fir Tree site . The school is being rebuilt as a three form entry primary school on the existing site and Sarah and her team are managing the transformation using the Fir Tree site for around three hundred of her children who are bussed up daily. It is an extraordinary logistical operation which the team and the children at Bankside appear to be taking in their stride!

I will miss this extraordinary school but I look forward to visiting when the new school opens in September 2011 to once again see Bankside at its brilliant best!
