Pupils at Court de Wyck Church School in Claverham have been enjoying their new colourful playground, thanks to generous donations from four local businesses and organisations including Newland Homes.
Newland Homes, who are building 75 climate-considerate homes opposite the school in Claverham, along with Waitrose in Nailsea, Yeo Valley Lions and Cleeve Parish Council helped fund the vibrant floor mural. Court de Wyck Church School is supported by a very active Parent Teacher Association (PTA), who worked tirelessly to raise the money to repaint the playground over the school holidays, so it was a welcome surprise for the children when they returned this term.
Jo Baker-Brown, Headteacher at Court de Wyck Church School commented: “The children are loving the new colourful addition to their playground and have been playing lots of games of twister and hopscotch. It has improved the quality of the children’s playtimes and it’s great to see them develop their social skills in such a positive way.”
Charlotte Hayes-Holgate from Newland Homes visited the school to see the children in action on the playground. She comments: “We all know the impact our surroundings can have on our health and wellbeing, and it’s a pleasure to be able to inject some additional cheer into the children’s play.”
