Baseline design for a 180 place school with a 26 place nursery
The design shown is a compact single-storey building for 180 infant pupils with a 26 place nursery. Key features of the design are that:
all classrooms have direct access to the outdoors
toilets for the youngest pupils are directly off the classrooms for better staff supervision
1 toilet is positioned close to one of the main exits allowing it to be reached during break times without going into the main school
separate access points around the building ensure there is no congestion at the start and end of the day
nursery and reception pupils can enter directly via their coat storage area
all classrooms are orthogonal, 7.2 metres deep and lit from both sides by daylight
roof-lights bring daylight into circulation areas
air is drawn across the classrooms and out through high-level windows ensuring good ventilation
services and security are zoned to allow for different uses of the school
the classroom and administration suites could form a separate block on a school site where the hall is being retained
the main reception provides a controlled entry point for visitors with easy access to the hall for after school community events
