EdufundUK are very happy to award the Bushey Academy funding for their first set of pole vaulting equipment. They are currently obliged to borrow poles when they compete at county level athletics but now they will be able to practice with, and use, their own pole. This should hopefully encourage more pupils into the sport.
By coincidence, we handed over the cheque on the first day of their OFSTED inspection – we hope it all went really well!
In November 2019, as part of our follow up procedure, Natalie told us.....
We annual enter the Watford District athletics league and every year previously have not been able to enter any athletes in the pole vault events - but this year we could. The money enabled us to purchase a new pole vault so we could take it to each event and 4 students each time were able to experience and take part in pole vault competitions for the first time.
