New Sports Facilities

The new year has got off to a fantastic start with the news that we have been awarded £20000 from Aldi as part of their Kit for Schools campaign. Only 20 schools across the country received the award and we are delighted that Acresfield was one of them. The children were excited to be a part of a special assembly, where the school was presented with the cheque by the Aldi area manager. Also at the assembly was double gold medal winning cyclist Phillip Hindes, who talked to the children about his success on the track at the London and Rio Olympics. It was an inspiring talk, which gave the children an insight into what it takes to be an Olympic champion. The children also had the chance to ask him questions, which ranged from how fast he cycled to whether he had ever fallen off!

The money will be put towards developing sport across the school, by providing an outdoor pitch for the children that can be used in P.E. lessons and during break times. The work is expected to take place later in the school year and will provide a super space to increase the opportunities and range of sports on offer to the children at Acresfield.
