We are delighted to announce that the school have been awarded a £10,000 Lottery Funding Grants For All grant to improve our outdoor play and sports facilities, and the installation of this surface is scheduled to take place over Thursday 25th and Friday 26th January. For the safety of our children, an area will be taped off and there will be slightly less playground for the next two days!
Our £10,000 award will enable the school to install 164 square metres of Playturf Deluxe all weather surfacing, including the necessary sub base. As well as significantly extending our all-weather area for play, the new surface will expand the opportunities available for multiple sports. The area will provide a superb surface for tri-golf activities and can be used in the summer as a cricket net strip and for other sporting activities. Our bid was made in collaboration with local community groups, including St Mary’s Church and the Marshalswick Baptist Church. The installation of the all weather surfacing will also extend the opportunities available for children who attend our Re-Play after-school club.
