The Schools recent upgrade of the outdoor games and exercise area has recently been completed. Key Stage 2 children have a new multi use games area to play various sports such as football, netball, basketball, hockey etc and also have an eight-piece gym that we built on artificial grass to reduce accidents and injuries. Key Stage 1 children have also got a new fitness play area.

Mrs. Todd said, “The children are absolutely loving the new equipment. The kids just see it as great fun. It took four weeks to build so the children have been able to see it take shape and have been eagerly waiting to have a go on it. The idea is that the kids get a bug for exercise and fitness for life and helps them to learn skills such as taking turns and being part of a team, while the kids just see it as great fun.”
