Earlier this week our new fitness equipment was installed in the KS2 playground. Now pupils will have even more opportunities for exercising and increasing their fitness at play times, lunchtimes and during PE lessons. The equipment was funded with a grant from “the sugar tax” and some of our Sports Premium Funding. Some lucky Year 3 pupils had a sneak preview before all pupils receive training in how to use the equipment safely.
