Decision to authorise payment of £43,735 of S106 monies for “Education” to Kingstone & Thruxton Primary School towards the development of a new Outdoor Play Provision.
Decision Maker: Director of Resources and Assurance
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
Pupil numbers at the school have been
increasing in recent years making it difficult to provide
sufficient purposeful space for children to use at break times. The
school are encouraging children to be as active as possible during
breaks and put on a range of additional activities to encourage
this, however they do not have sufficient space to have multiple
team games in operation safely.
The multi-gym equipment would utilise a currently unused space and provide the additional capacity required during breaks. It would also enhance the schools PE, science and RSE curriculums as well as supporting the priority for children to be more active.
The trim trail would allow a currently unused area of the outdoor area to be redeveloped and add a large area of additional capacity. It would provide a purposeful space in line with the schools ‘Healthy Me’ agenda of encouraging children to be as active as possible during breaks. It would also support the PE, science and RSE curriculum.
