Our existing playground equipment is old, worn and tired. We would like to replace it in stages.
Our first project is the KS1 playground equipment although all children have the opportunity to play on it at different times. We want to encourage children to be as active as possible promoting physical health and supporting social interaction and imaginative play. Exercise is all proven to benefit mental health and what better way to do this than by playing an exciting game on great playground equipment?
Staverton School has a wide range of pupils on the school role, including many different ethnic backgrounds, children with special education needs and children eligible for the pupil premium. This would not only benefit a school of over 240 pupils, it would also benefit all of the siblings of children attending the school who play in the playground whilst waiting for their brother or sister to go to class in the mornings or finish school at the end of the day. This would benefit the wider community too as many children will at some point attend the school and also children of community members who visit the school during our many fundraising events throughout the school calendar such as the Christmas Bazaar or the Summer Teddy Trail.
