John Fielding School are thrilled to announce they have received £9,389 grant from The National Lottery Awards for All Scheme. This great news meant that upgrades could be made to the children’s playground area to improve playtime.
Pupil numbers at John Fielding School have increased over the years and this has resulted in new classrooms being installed to accommodate the new children. This in turn has resulted in the playground being fenced off in certain areas and therefore playground markings becoming un-useable.
This injection of funding from the National Lottery has allowed us to remove the old markings and lay new exciting fitness trails for the children. It has also included the installation of inclusive outdoor exercise equipment for the pupils to engage with during playtimes.
Karen Smith, Head of Site, “We are really grateful to the Lottery for this funding, it has made a huge difference to the pupils. They are now engaging more at break time, interacting with their peers, all due to these fantastic new play facilities we have had installed.”
