Ashwell get a shed-load of outdoor learning equipment.

We were very pleased to award Ashwell Primary School a grant for outdoor science and English sheds and water play/learning equipment in order to create an outdoor learning space for their Year 1.

We are always looking for arguments of the benefits a bid will provide but even better than this is evidence that the projected benefits are likely to come into fruition.  This might be from e.g. other schools, research or previous experience of staff or the school itself.  Tracy Bowen (School Business Manager) provided the latter as part of her bid:

“Having already witnessed the benefit of the outdoor learning area in Early Years where we have seen children flourish, we know that these facilities will help our children to continue to make good progress in all areas of their learning.
