Play Trail Appeal for Haslingfield School

Many of the outdoor play facilities at Haslingfield Primary School are in disrepair, this is of particular concern given the emphasis on outdoor activity in the new Physical Education curriculum. As Government funding for Cambridgeshire schools is notoriously low the PTFA is working with Ms. Peck (Leading Senior Teacher and PE Coordinator) to raise money for a new outdoor play facility called a Play Trail. This will have two components, a traverse wall and a wooden obstacle course. See images and more details on how you can help by clicking on ‘Read More’ below: Read more
