Following a move to new premises the school is expanding rapidly, taking on new pupils. The Friends of Chapel Green School have supported the school in the purchase of outdoor play equipment and now need further assistance to buy an outdoor fitness centre costing approximately £20,000. The Friends have been fundraising for 3 years and have £10,000 towards this project.
This equipment is very important for the development of the children. As well as assisting physically it will give vital psychological help in preparing pupils for learning and allowing the best possible outcome for each child.
This equipment can also be used by children of adjacent main stream schools and local activity groups. This will provide valuable inclusive learning experiences for young people and help change attitudes and behaviours towards disadvantaged children and give a greater understanding of disability and equality.
