Overdale Junior School has excellent facilities which enhance the learning experience of our pupils.
We have 16 classrooms available for teaching, all with interactive screens, a well stocked library and two sets of 30 laptops and two sets of 30 ipads.
Thanks to fundraising efforts by Overdale Parents Association we now have a dedicated teaching kitchen which is used for Food Routes.
Our spacious assembly hall is used for concerts, meetings and clubs, gymnastics and other PE activities. We have a dining hall, with kitchen, housed in a separate building and school dinners are prepared freshly on the premises every day.
Outside there are extensive grounds around the school, which include two hard surface playgrounds with play equipment, a large field used for sports and at playtime, and a wooded area with a stream. Indeed, the range of habitats within the school campus has led to us joining the Forest School project.
As a Healthy School we encourage our pupils to walk, scoot or cycle to school and provide a large covered shelter for them to lock their bikes and scooters in.
