Barnby Road Academy Outdoor Tables, Benches and Parasols
The Barnby Road Academy Friends Association would like to replace the wooden tables and benches around the school. We’d like to enhance the current provision with parasols. The children would benefit from the new equipment in the school day and after school they will be joined by their parents. The school is open until 5pm for community to enjoy.
- Provide new tables & benches. The current ones have deteriorated so need to be replaced for Health & Safety purposes. It's great to see parents staying after school to let the children enjoy the facilities; we want to offer suitable benches to use.
- To provide more shade for the children and their families around the school, creating a more suitable environment. The summer months do bring some sunshine so we want to offer the children & their parents/carers a suitable shaded area to sit at.
- To provide more equipment to meet the increasing numbers of people using our facilities. The number of children using the school has almost doubled in the last 10 years. With increased demand, we need more seating capacity.
How we will achieve our goals
The project could be achieved by sourcing a suitable product and competitive supplier to provide the tables, benches and parasols for the school. The school is growing, as in 2012 the school increased from a 2 to 3 class intake each year. By 2018, the school will have over 600 children. New outdoor equipment will help meet increasing demand.
Where the money will go
Replacing our tables and benches will make a significant difference to the children at Barnby Road Academy and their parents and carers. The current ones are not in very good condition and need to be replaced. The parasols will be a great addition as there are times in the spring and summer where more shade would be beneficial to everyone.
