NB: RAAC - unfortunately, SJV does have RAAC but it is limited to the school hall. This does mean that we need to use external routes to get around, so please bear that in mind when visiting, particularly in inclement weather. 

This is only for a short time - we are working hard on getting the hall back in use as soon as possible.
