About the Project
A close knit ‘village’ community in the heart of the city, the school is let down by the outdoor space which is bland and bare with little to do. An inspiring playground environment will enhance a sense of belonging to the school and generate a strong sense of community pride. Neighbours are invited to the annual Spring Fair, where they will be able to access and enjoy the new play areas.
About the Charity
‘To advance the education of the pupils at the school by providing and assisting in the provision of facilities for education at the school ( not normally provided by the local education authority).’ In practice this means providing all pupils with ‘additional’ experiences and opportunities outside of the scope of the LEA’s funding. This might mean purchasing new books, furniture, equipment or apparatus, paying for trips and outings or paying for opportunities to meet with listen to and interact with visiting professionals - artists, musicians, writers, scientists, actors, academics and poets in order to enhance the curriculum and bring it to life. The PTFA ensures ALL pupils are able to access these additional opportunities and events by paying for children from low income families.
