Cheney Friends are leading a campaign to raise fund to improve outside spaces around the school site. Students, staff and parents are all involved in developing ideas for improving Cheney's outdoor spaces to create more places to sit, socialise and play. We want to ensure the site is as biodiverse as possible and offers opportunities for students to connect with and learn about nature.
We estimate that the first phase of the project will cost £100, 000. Our aim is to raise £50,000. The school will match all donations made by parents to this level. All money raised will be used to help improve the school's environment for students and wildlife.
The priorities for 2022 include:
- Increasing the amount of covered and uncovered seating available to students. We have already raised enough to buy some outdoor seating made of recycled plastic.
- Additional planting in existing flower beds and new planters to improve the environment for students and wildlife.
