At Shaw Ridge Primary we are committed to providing a happy, secure and stimulating environment in which children can enjoy their learning. We strive to make learning fun and provide an education that develops the whole child academically, socially and emotionally.

We are seeking to initially raise £5,000 towards further grants we are applying for to purchase equipment for an 'outdoor gym' to be installed within the school playground.

This facility would be available to students in their lessons and lunchtimes in the school day. we believe exercising outdoors provides all the physical benefits of indoor exercise (blood flow, improved cardiovascular health, improved strength, flexibility, endurance, etc.)

An 'outdoor gym' would be made up of a range of exercise equipment, especially designed to meet different people's needs and interests. It would give our young people the opportunity to undertake regular exercise whilst having fun with their friends! The importance of exercise on both physical and mental well-being is well-known and we wish to encourage this for our children.

The reality of school funding today means it is difficult to find the funds from our day-to-day budget but we are determined to fund this life-enhancing project. 

Therefore we are seeking to raise £5,000 by crowdfunding to help make this inspirational project a reality so we need your help to make it happen!

So why crowdfunding? Crowdfunding is a great way to hit a fundraising target through a group of people all coming together to put funds into the same pot and encouraging others to do the same.

The larger the group or ‘crowd’ formed, the more money we raise so the key to any crowdfunding appeal is getting the message out there via all of our networks.

Please help us to make this possible by passing on the appeal details on your own social media network to family, friends and your other contacts to help spread our message. Every single donation helps and is gratefully received.

To make a donation, please click on the DONATE button here. We can also claim Gift Aid, with consent, on your donation boosting the giving by 25%, when applicable.

Thank you for your support. We truly appreciate the gift and it will really make a difference to our school.

Please help us to provide this opportunity for the students at Shaw Ridge Primary School.
