Break times get a lift from Sport Eng­land

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

CHIL­DREN have been en­joy­ing spend­ing their break times out­doors on a school’s new play­ground.

Last year, Elmtree School, in Elm Tree Hill, Che­sham, suc­cess­fully ap­plied for fund­ing from the Sport Eng­land pri­mary spa­ces Na­tional Lot­tery fund.

Elmtree School in Che­sham has had play­ground im­prove­ment work car­ried out

The ini­tia­tive was launched fol­low­ing the 2012 Olympic Games to in­spire the next gen­er­a­tion to de­velop an en­thu­si­asm for PE and sport so that they can con­tinue to de­velop healthy, ac­tive life­styles through­out their lives.

The work on im­prov­ing the play­ground has now been com­pleted.

Head­teacher Daphne Dru said: “Elmtree is one of only 601 pri­mary schools in Eng­land to re­ceive fund­ing to im­prove its out­door space and help the next gen­er­a­tion de­velop a life­long sport­ing habit. Well done Mrs Black­more for com­plet­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion. We have sig­nif­i­cantly im­proved the ap­pear­ance and safety of the sur­fac­ing on both the pa­tio and top play­grounds. There are also a num­ber of new stor­age units for out­door equip­ment and some ex­cit­ing new ac­tiv­ity pan­els.”
