Reinventing our Outdoor Spaces!

This year the monies raised by our PTA will go towards regenerating our large outdoor spaces to get our children more active!

As you are aware, we are fortunate to have fabulous school grounds and a group of children (and parents) who are keen to make the most of them! Some things never change and football is as popular as ever, but we are keen to develop a wide range of sports and improve all our outdoor areas. We are therefore embarking on four new school projects, all of which are designed to improve our sporting facilities and play areas as well as get every child more active! All current efforts (including our forthcoming Christmas fair on 15 December) will go towards the following:

A re-surfacing of the KS1 playground with multiplay and artificial grass. The plan is to zone 4 areas, provide a mini running track around the edge and maximise play space by artificially grassing the muddy areas. 

A tarmac re-surfacing of the KS2 playground nearest the entrance in order to create a full sized netball court. The plan is to include our school emblem and provide seating areas and designated quiet spaces. 

The creation of a multiplay 200m running track round the football pitch on the school field. Running 8 laps is equivalent to running a mile and the plan is to include a 4 lane, 80m straight alongside the loop. 

The installation of a MUGA (multi use game area) on the current KS2 playground next to the tyres. The area would be big enough for two 5 a side football pitches but marked for different games and protected by a low fence. 

Full plans and costs will be shared with parents in a couple of weeks but do contact the school if you would like to know more. We are also fortunate enough to have a parent help us with bid writing so if you feel you can offer your support with this, or with sponsorship or donations, please let the school know.
