Developing Parental Engagement through Sport
The site is very exposed and whilst parents drop pupils off, many don’t want to wait as there are no refreshment facilities or any shelters for Parents or Pupils to stand and keep dry. The Site is also used by Academy Rugby and Football Club.
- To increase parental engagement and support of school sports. The primary aim is to encourage more parents to get involved in supporting their child and the wider school community through staying at the sports grounds when they drop off pupils.
- To provide adequate shelter and catering facilities from the elements. The site is very exposed and lacks the facilities it requires.
- To support the work of the Academy Rugby and Football clubs to further engage the local community in sport. The school has an excellent link with the sports club and a building of this nature would further develop their profile in the community.
How we will achieve our goals
The community award will develop the site into a functioning sports club for both the school and the community. Providing safe shelter for spectators, catering facilities for visiting teams and spectators. The modular building and catering facilities will enhance engagement with parents and local people who support the school and club.
Where the money will go
The playing fields are known for being very cold. It is therefore an under used and supported resource by Parents and the local community. Having a modular spectator and catering building, which can be used like a proper clubhouse, will develop community engagement and extend the use of the facility.
