We finally moved in to the new building in December 2011, right on time. Staff worked extremely hard to complete the move with a team from a removal company. This ensured that the building was ready for the childrena at the start of the Spring term.  The children loved the new building  - it has to be one of the best primary school buildings in Rochdale.
