  • Summary of Feasibility Report On Roby Park Primary and Park View Primary Background The Corporate Asset Management team were asked to produce a Feasibility Report on Roby Park Primary and Park View Primary, to see which site best fits the requirements for a 2 Forms of Entry primary school. Roby Park Primary is situated on a large site with extensive playing fields. The Building has been rewired and had new windows installed in recent years. Park View Primary is situated on a site with no grassed playing fields but has large Hard Play Areas. The Building has been rewired and had sections of new roofing and windows installed in recent years. Officers from the Corporate Asset Management Team visited both Roby Park, and Park View on the 20 July 2011. This visit enabled the Officers to assess individual areas and structure against the DfE requirements. Requirements for a Two Form of Entry School Two forms of entry school require: Building  14 classrooms of an average size (60m2) 822m2  1 (or 1 Large and 1 small) Assembly Hall totalling 226m2  Staff and Admin areas totalling 114m2  Learning Resources (Inc. Library and SEN areas) totalling 78m2 and  Storage totalling 150m2 Site  Pitches (Team Games) 8,400m2  Hard Surface Games Courts at 1,440m2 and Hard Surface Informal & Social at 1,030m2 (these areas can be combined)  The site should be between 17,320m2 and 17,300m2 Figures above are taken from Building Bulletin 99 Minimum Standards
  • Roby Park Roby Park currently has the following areas Building  12 Classrooms totalling 654.24m2 (average size 60m2) – 2 classrooms and 227.76m2 short of the standards  Assembly hall measuring 204.08m2 – 21.92m2 short of the standards  Staff and Admin totalling 65.48m2 – 48.52m2 short of the standards  Learning Resources totalling 51.9m2 – 26.1m2 short of the standards  Storage totalling 70.66m2 – 79.34m2 short of the standards  Private Nursery 111.76m2 Site  Pitches (Team Games) measuring 22,650m2 – 14,250m2 over the standards  Hard Surface Games Courts and Hard Surface Informal & Social totalling 2470m2 (combined) – 687m2 short of the standards  The total site is 35,220m2 – 15,920m2 over the upper standard  Car parking – Limited Car Parking for current staff levels Park View Park View currently has the following areas Building  14 Classrooms totalling 724.21m2 (average size 45m2) – 97.79m2 short of the standards  Assembly hall & Gym totalling 289.42m2 – 63.42m2 over of the standards  Staff and Admin totalling 174.1m2 – 60.1m2 over of the standards  Learning Resources totalling 249.7m2 – 171.7m2m2 over of the standards  Storage totalling 107.61m2 – 42.39m2 short of the standards  Swimming pool  Dining Hall Block with Community Rooms  NNI Building Site  Pitches (Team Games) measuring 0m2 – 8,400m2 short the standards  Hard Surface Games Courts and Hard Surface Informal & Social totalling 4,582m2 (combined) – 2,112m2 over of the standards  The total site is 15,970m2 – 3,330m2 short of the upper standard  Car parking – Limited Car Parking for current staff levels
  • Proposed Schemes Roby Park (Appendix A) It is envisaged that the east side of the building could remain unchanged (currently has 8 classrooms) with internal remodelling undertaken to the west side (nursery side).The remodelling would create 3 classrooms at approximately 66m2 each and a 4th classroom could be created by a new build extension of approximately 66m2. The total area to be remodelled would be approximately 200m2 (excluding the nursery area). A further 2 classrooms would be required and it is proposed that a double temporary classroom be utilised on the east side of the site. This would give a total provision of 14 classrooms. To address the shortfall of staff and admin areas, a modular building solution could be utilised behind the main entrance area. This would need to be approximately 114m2. The area of the building to be re-modelled would need to be taken out of school use whilst the works were carried out, potentially including the Nursery area depending on the extent of works. The area would need to be physically segregated and a temporary perimeter fence erected around the proposed extension area. An area would also be required for a contractor’s compound. It is envisaged that depending on the extent of work required the area could be out of school use for approximately 20 weeks. This could possibly be reduced if an alternative to the new build extension was chosen. A single temporary classroom could be utilised so the school could remain operational whilst the works were being carried out. Control of building work during school hours would be needed, specifically with regard to noise levels, however it is envisaged that because of the layout of site, a solution could be developed which would allow works to be carried out without causing disruption to the school. Areas of hard play area would be out of use whilst the works are carried out, therefore additional hard play areas could be created adjacent to the existing prior to the main building works commencing. This would ensure that there is sufficient hard play area available whilst the works are carried out and once complete will also increase the overall hard play area to be in line with the requirements set out above. Another issue to consider would be the future of the Private Nursery at the school. If Roby Park was the chosen option, there would no longer be space for the private nursery to operate at the school.
  • Park View (Appendix B) It is envisaged that the north side of the building could remain unchanged (Gymnasium and Assembly Hall side) together with the office area in the centre, however extensive internal remodelling would be required to the remainder of the building approx (1,200m2). This is due to the relatively small sized classrooms at an average size of 45m2. Existing walls would need to be removed, which following a site visit were deemed to be load bearing and replaced with steel supports and new partition walls constructed to create larger classrooms in line with the requirements above. Works would also be required to the electrics, heating and alarm systems in these areas to suit the new configuration, together with new floor finishes and decoration. The reconfiguration of rooms would give a total of 13 classrooms, meaning an additional classroom would be required. An option could be to build an extension onto the existing staff room (room 064) and convert into a classroom. (The staff room could be relocated to the existing classroom adjacent to the Assembly Hall). The extension would need to be approximately 30m2, giving a total new room area of 64m2. An alternative solution would be utilising a single temporary classroom. Either way, this would give the required total provision of 14 classrooms. We believe that further development would also be required if the Car Park is deemed to be too small. One option would be to move the car park and entrance to the other side of the site/building. Works would be required to transform part of the hard play area into a car park and a small extension (18m2) to create a new entrance/foyer. The schools former car park could then be turned into a hard Informal & Social area for the school. For the school to remain operational whilst the works were ongoing the works would have to be carried out in two phases, with one half of the teaching area vacated and physically segregated at a time. It is envisaged that depending on the extent of work required each area could be out of school use for approximately 15 weeks each giving a total period of 30 weeks. It is envisaged that works would have to be carried out during school hours to be completed within the above periods. Other issues to consider would be the future of the Neighbourhood Nursery, Swimming Pool and the newly refurbished Community Rooms in the Dining Hall Block and Family Centre.
  • Conclusion It is possible with a combination of reconfiguration of internal space and the incorporation of new build extensions/modular buildings that both schools could be made suitable for 2 form of entry. Park View only requires a small amount of new build extension, however the amount of internal remodelling required is extensive and would be to approximately 6 times the area than what would be required at Roby Park. The area affected is spread across the whole building at Park View, whereas at Roby Park it is limited to one area which could be completely segregated from the remaining area of the school whilst the works are ongoing. Physical segregation and keeping disruption to a minimum at Park View would be much more difficult to achieve whilst the works were ongoing. Please refer to SWOT analysis in Appendix C for further information. When making a decision on which site to chose, the authority also needs to consider the Department of Educations views on a possible future land disposal. In a Land Disposal Application we have to include the background to how this site became surplus to requirements. If Roby Park was to be disposed of, we would have to justify choosing a site with no green playing fields over a site which has well over the minimum standards. This may cause the department (DfE) to question the authority’s judgement. On the basis of the extensive works identified as being required from this feasibility study at Park View together with the restricted site area, it would appear that in terms of timescale, cost and potential disruption to pupils whilst works are ongoing, Roby Park would appear to be best suited to be reconfigured to a 2 form of entry school.

  • Appendix C – SWOT Analysis Park View SWOT Analysis Strength  Large Solid Building, which is in good condition  High levels of hard play areas, that can be used all year round Opportunity  Develop a large solid building into a 21st Century Learning environment  Swimming Pool on site which is used by local schools and community  Has a number of 3rd Party Users – Family Centre, NNI, Weakness  Small site with no grassed playing fields  Currently majority of classrooms around 45m2 to 50m2 (10 out of 14 Classrooms)  Higher cost scheme  School have extended Car Park a number time – Car Park very narrow  All walls identified for demolition are load bearing and would require steel beams for support  Swimming Pool Energy Costs are high  School buildings are in good condition, but on first inspection, the Swimming Pool looks like it requires more investment Threat  Major works and a number of phases, could destabilise the running of the school.  Justifying disposing of a large site with playing fields and retaining a small school site Roby Park SWOT Analysis Strength  Large site with large Playing Fields  Only 3 Classrooms are between 40m2 and 45m2 (the remaining 8 classrooms are just under 60m2  Scheme to remodel and extend the school would be to the rear of the school while the school operates at the front of the school relatively unaffected  The majority of walls identified for demolition are not load bearing and wouldn’t require steel beams for support. This is a significant factor in reducing the cost of the scheme. Opportunity  School could extend beyond 2FE and still manage to meet or exceed the DfE requirements Weakness  Small building would need extending to meet the DfE requirements  School has no Swimming Pool  School will also require 1 Double Mobile Classroom to meet DfE requirements.  Teaching areas are 2 storey with no lift. Threat  If this site is chosen could potentially need to relocate/rebuild NNI, Family Centre and Swimming Pool buildings  Need to relocate Private Nursery at School
  • Appendix D – Budget Cost Summary The area of refurbishment / remodelling required at Park View is 1,200m2 compared to 200m2 at Roby Park. The new build extension areas / area of modular building required at Park View is 48m2 compared to 310m2 at Roby Park. Modifications and extension to hard landscape areas is 700m2 at Park View compared to 300m2 at Roby Park. The changes/extension of the building at Roby Park could take place to the rear of the school, while the school remains operational at the front. The changes required at Park View are throughout the school (small classrooms) and would need to be completed over a number of phases, which would cost more money and time to complete and cause greater disruption to pupils. The overall assessment of budget costs for the reconfiguration and modernisation of the Park View site is £1.45m compared to £1.15m for the Roby Park site. Budget costs were calculated by measuring the areas requiring remodelling and the amount of new build at each site. The same rates were used for both sites to ensure impartiality and were based on previous schemes undertaken.
