Staff are challenging themselves; going that extra mile for our pupils and our community by doing amazing things to fundraise and inspire pupils, such as: Cycling 200km in 7 days Running 84.4km over 10 days Cycling the distance from Lands End to John O'Groats as a team Hill walking to climb the equivalent height of Kilimanjaro We are doing this to encourage all of our pupils, whether at home or back in school, to take on their own challenge. This will promote physical and mental well-being and unite our school community in a positive, proactive way. We aim to be able to: Increase participation in sport Raise funds to create safe spaces for more pupils to return to school Raise funds to use outdoor spaces creatively to support learning & well-being e.g. storytelling area, canopy cover for seated group Raise funds to replace equipment and furniture no longer suitable for our Nurture Room and Parent Meeting room because they are soft furnishings and not allowed due to COVID-19
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Our aim is to improve our facilities and create spaces that will allow us to bring more children back in to school. We want all of the children who have been away from us to be excited about coming back - enhancing our outdoor spaces will be appealing to our children and may support their eventual return well. We recognise that there will be a need to support children with additional needs or anxieties and that the spaces in school we used for this previously need rethinking and kitting out in a more appropriate way . Trying to raise funds to support these projects is a proactive and positive thing to do to unite the community, support physical and mental health and make a difference in our local area. There is so much we can do and want to do to make a difference in our corner of the world for our pupils, our families and community groups we work with.
Steps to get it done:
Children participating in a challenge at home or in school will be awarded a 2020 lockdown medal that has been designed by one of our pupils and has been supplied by a local business returning to work on 15th June. We will create a medals board in school to chart the achievements of all who enter as a lasting legacy of what has been achieved. Staff taking on challenges will chart their progress and update supporters on their efforts. We will encourage children who take part to do the same.
