KS2 playground Project 


We want to create a better KS2 playground for our children. The existing area facilitates football and netball but we can do so much more, enabling our children to engage in all forms of recreation.


“Playgrounds can have a dramatic impact on improving learning, promoting positive behaviour, encouraging better concentration in lessons and developing a healthier generation through a variety of active play “ (Schools for the Future – Designing School Grounds)


Help us to reach our £25,000 target. Together we can create something joyful, inspiring and wonderful. A lovely space to play every day with friends… Details about how you can donate to the appeal are overleaf.


St Alban’s is probably the lowest funded school in Cambridge (compared with like schools). This leaves precious little for projects like this. We really cannot achieve this without your help...
