Ash Green Primary School celebrates after receiving grant from the RJS Foundation for early years climbing frame.
A local primary school is celebrating after being awarded a grant by the RJS Foundation to help fund the removal and replacement of an old climbing frame.
Ash Green Primary School is celebrating after being awarded £250 towards a new early years climbing frame, with their existing one currently out of action.
Their existing equipment is old and no longer meets health and safety requirements. This has meant part of the playground is now cordoned off and the children can no longer enjoy the climbing frame. Due to the school’s location, they are unable to request Local Authority funding or bids and so alternative methods to deliver on the project are being employed.
This project will make a significant difference to the early education of their Nursery and Reception children, as well as to the overall appearance and reputation of the school. When prospective parents visits the school the playground is one of the first parts they see and the school therefore really wants to improve the first impression the playground gives.
They are hopeful that with the RJS Foundation’s support and the efforts of their PTFA, they will be able to raise enough funds to provide a new climbing frame and further improve the aesthetics of the playground.
