Commitment to pupil health and development at this Cornwall primary school resulted in the installation of a new MUGA with a 740m2 Fordingbridge canopy.
Thanks to a combination of Sports Premium funding, and dedicated fundraising efforts by the pupils, parents and staff at the school, St Stephens (Saltash) C. P. School have been able to develop an unused area of the school grounds and transform it into a large level area suitable for general play, games, sporting activities and inter-school competitions. Our canopy allows for year round use, providing shelter from rain and shade from sun.
“We’re increasingly educating our children to be healthy and make good life choices, but we struggle with a lack of space for physical exercise. When the weather is good, our field allows the children to be very active, but in winter we are forced to compromise on statutory PE lessons as well as the additional sugar tax recommendation of half an hour a day of exercise.
Participation in sport has been proven to have enormous and lasting effects on personal health and well being, so this facility will enable us to provide a wider range of experiences and opportunities to be active, and in return, raise aspirations and achievement”
Headteacher, Heather Launders
