Awards & Achievements


Our school has been lucky enough to have secured funding through this scheme to help pay for our new climbing frame and we need your support by voting for us every time you shop in Tesco’s please. When you shop at Tesco’s, you will be given a token at the check-out – please drop it in the St Giles’ School box!

Tesco has teamed up with Groundwork on its Bags of Help initiative in hundreds of regions across England and Wales. The scheme will see three community groups and projects in each of these regions awarded grants of £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 – all raised from the 5p bag charge.

Bags of Help offers community groups and projects in each of Tesco’s 416 regions across the UK a share of revenue generated from the 5p charge levied on single-use carrier bags. The public will now vote in store from 26 September to 9 October on who should receive the £12,000, £10,000 and £8,000 awards. In total, there is over £12.5 million up for grabs.

Our current trim trail is nearly 15 years old and is tired and wearing out with various parts having been replaced over the last few years. Our children have requested a climbing frame outside on our field to help develop their fitness, upper body strength and well-being in the open air. We have a grass space in good condition on our field as shown in the picture in the gap at the front of the trim trail. The children requested through our School Council to have some new climbing equipment. The whole school voted to have a new climbing frame and are actively looking at events and ways to raise the funds required as quickly as possible.
