Braunstone Frith Primary School

New Building and Time Capsule

As some of you may know over the last few months we have undertaken an extensive building project at Braunstone Frith to provide new classrooms for our pupils. These new buildings will provide an excellent new resource and opportunities for the children, and will unite the school as one by ensuring a physical link between our two buildings.

Now that the building work nears completion we were lucky enough receive a visit from the Lord Mayor Sir Peter Soulsby to commemorate the building project by burying a time capsule. Our head teacher Amelia Smith was joined by The Lord Mayor, Assistant City Mayor responsible for education Councillor Vi Dempster and Izzy Reid our chair of governors. We heard from the School Council about the importance of being one school and what this building means to the children. They then watched as pupils Bethany and Harry buried the time capsule.


Time Capsule Speech 

1 - Alayah: Here at the site of the old junior and infant schools, we are really proud to now be known as ‘Braunstone Frith Primary School’. 

2 - Jamie: The joining of the two schools means that we are even closer together as a ‘whole’ community.  It allows for more interaction between both pupils and staff.

3 - Bethany: For the pupils it means we are all one united team where we all know what’s happening within each key stage. 

4 - Brooke: For the staff it means they can now have the opportunity to teach across both key stages and support our learning even more!

5 - Naradzo: Our new school logo joins together all the good elements from each of the schools, with the focus still being on ‘positive thinkers and lifelong learners’.

6 - Betty: It’s good that the older key stage 2 children can now be role models for the younger children especially when they are having lunch together. It’s all about team work and communication.

7 - Kian: As a member of the school council, it is great to have the opportunity to work with both the key stage 1 and key stage 2councillors in improving Braunstone Frith Primary School.
