    The school recently had its first OFSTED inspection for a number of years. The good news is that it kept its 'Good' rating despite the challenging funding situation that all small schools are finding themselves in. Heather said "As Chair of Governors I would like to take this opportunity of thanking all the staff and my fellow governors for all the hard work they have put in to make this happen."

    SHROPSHIRE COUNCIL HAS CONFIRMED THAT THE CHANGING ROOM REFURBISHMENTS AT SpArC WILL TAKE PLACE BETWEEN 19TH FEBRUARY AND 9TH MARCH. THE POOL WILL BE CLOSED FOR THESE 3 WEEKS.
    The refurbishment will involve work to combat saturated flooring and a faulty stop tap in the ladies changing area. It will hopefully encompass the root causes of what has been a very long-standing problem and should result in transformed changing facilities. Shropshire Council have committed capital monies of circa £100k to refurbishment works at SpArC, the first stage of which was replacing the dehumidifier, which was completed before Christmas. New lockers will be provided by the SpArC charity.
    A spokesperson for Shropshire Council apologised for the delay in completing the changing room works and endorsed the future commitment of the Council to SpArC as a tier one leisure provider.

    Shropshire Council's method of collecting plastic waste and the way it leaves plastic scattered all over the countryside has raised the ire of residents in the west of the county.

    Heather said:


    " Following on from the recent outcry in the media over plastic in the oceans following Blue Planet 2, a number of colleagues and I have received a growing number of complaints about the way that Shropshire Council collects plastic waste for recycling. Other councils provide some form of cover for the plastic box (either a lid or a net as in Powys) to prevent plastic items blowing away but not Shropshire. If you have and sort of breeze on collection day it results is plastic being blown all over the place.

    Dear All

    Having put everything in place to register for training for Community Speed Watch - including getting the backing yesterday from our PACT - I have been told that the speed camera van will be coming back to us.! This means that they will now not train us for Community speed Watch.

    They also say that they are having problems parking the Camera van at the Brockton site as it is soft.
