We are delighted to report that, thanks to a considerable amount of support from The Big Local Lottery Fund, at last we are able to erect a fence around our school playing field. It is anticipated that the work will begin on Monday, 24th November 2014 and will take approximately one week.
The new fence will be a huge benefit to both the children at our school and the local community for several reasons:
- The field will be a safer place to play and learn, because the risk from broken glass and dog fouling will be removed.
- We know that the children will be contained within a safe space, so will not be at risk from stray dogs and strangers.
- Subject to prior approval from the school, organised community groups will be able to use our field after school in the summer and at weekends all year round.
- Increased use of the field will provide opportunities for pupils and the local community to engage in more sporting activities, thus promoting healthy lifestyles.
