Danesfield School in Buckinghamshire win £5,000 Community Award

The teachers, pupils and parents of Danesfield School in Buckinghamshire are celebrating their win of £5,000 thanks to the OneFamily Foundation Community Award scheme.

The funding will be spent on creating an all-weather outdoor, stimulating and engaging learning environment to benefit all of the key stage 1 pupils at the school. The new equipment will not only encourage and inspire the children to play together in a fun and safe area, but it will ensure rapid progress across the EYFS.

OneFamily customer and Treasurer for the School’s PTA, Janet Trounce, nominated Danesfield School to be in the Schools category for the £5,000 community award.

“When I heard about OneFamily Foundation Community Awards I knew our school was the perfect candidate. We truly are so very grateful and now we just can’t wait to get the equipment installed and see the children benefitting from it.”

Redeveloping the outside space will enable children to learn from movable equipment that will be used across teaching in maths, literacy, art, music and role play. The equipment will aid the health and personal development of key stage 1 pupils.

We hope the children enjoy their new equipment and benefit from these new and exciting methods of learning at Danesfield School and look forward to seeing them in action.
