Moorland Primary School celebrates completion of new school development

Significant works to redevelop and improve facilities at Moorland Primary School in Splott have been completed.

The £7million investment has seen a new 20 place Specialist Resource Base established at the school for pupils with Complex Learning Needs and a replacement Early Years Unit which was in essential need of updating.

A new Flying Start provision, Twinkle Star, has also been delivered increasing the number of places from 32 to 40 with the potential for 6 childcare offer spaces for 3 and 4 year olds available in due course. This will allow children to move over from the current Flying Start site at Willows high School which is to be relocated and rebuilt on land off Lewis Road in 2026.

The new community campus facility will provide both education alongside family support services to benefit families from pre-birth, with babies and up to primary age children. In addition, the scheme has also provided a new Multi Use Game Area, enhanced outdoor spaces, sustainable drainage features and a new crèche and community room for parenting and community use. The former caretakers house has been demolished and Splott Adventure Amateur Boxing Club has been relocated to Ocean Park.

New wall art for colourful Tudor Street

A vibrant new mural is the latest addition to the artwork and colourful streetscape of a recently regenerated city centre road.

A delicate pink waterlily is the centrepiece of the new painting which has been produced by local artist, Rmer One, on the side of The Health Centre of Traditional Chinese Medicine building owned by Mr Pak Hong Lam on Tudor Street.

The mural is the newest piece of art in the Tudor Street area where a major regeneration scheme, including commercial, environmental and transport improvements, has recently been completed.

With Welsh Government support via its Transforming Towns and Active Travel initiatives as well as Cardiff Council investment, the scheme has delivered a pleasant and welcoming environment for businesses, residents and the wider community with colourful new frontages to shops, new paving, street furniture and lighting and new green infrastructure, promoting opportunities for biodiversity and improved air quality.

A new bus island facilitating bus travel into Central Square and the wider city centre, a new two-way, segregated cycle lane, wider pavements and improved pedestrian crossings have all helped to enhance the local environment along Tudor Street.
