HUNTERS BAR INFANT SCHOOL
#GoGoGreen Pollution Barrier
On the 4th November we unveiled our much anticipated
#GoGoGreen pollution barrier to a crowd of supporters. The living green wall, which stretches the 60m perimeter of the school playground, is the culmination of eight months public fundraising and corporate engagement, involving the entire school community, The University of Sheffield’s Breathe Project, PhD student María del Carmen Redondo Bermúdez and more than 50 organisations across the city. Our launch party gathered attention from the media and was shown on BBC’s Look North.
The pollution barrier consists of three layers. Fifty ivy fence panels act as the first line of defence; they aim to reduce the amount of NO2 gases reaching the playground. The middle layer consists of plant species selected
because of their ability to reduce particulate matter in the air; such as conifers and bamboo. The third and final layer has been designed using shrubs and herbaceous plants that complement the aesthetics of the playground.

Adverse Weather Conditions procedures
As winter draws nearer and there is a higher potential for adverse weather conditions we would like to remind you of our emergency procedures.
If it snows overnight we aim to make a decision about school opening by 8am, wherever possible. If it snows heavily during the school day we will inform parents as soon as possible if school needs to close early.
We will inform parents and carers via text, social media, the school website and local radio. Please ensure that school has your most up to date mobile phone number.
The decision to close is always based on health and safety grounds, such as maintaining the staff pupil ratios and local road conditions.

A MESSAGE FROM THE HEADTEACHER
We are delighted to have the opportunity to introduce you to our school.
Hunter’s Bar Infant School is a welcoming, stimulating and exciting place to be and we would encourage all prospective parents to visit the school in order to see this at first hand. We are only too pleased to talk to parents and offer you the opportunity to look around the school.
Hunter’s Bar Infant School is dedicated to making a positive difference to the lives of all our children. We aim to foster a love of learning through the nurturing of confidence and self-esteem, enabling every child the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
We are committed to providing equality of opportunity for all and we encourage children to value the rich diversity within our community. Time is taken to celebrate the proud achievements of all children and we value their personal, social, moral and spiritual development just as much as their academic attainment.
We very much look forward to working in partnership with you as parents to provide a truly happy and successful start to school for your child.
