Pupils at Camestone School in Bedford have a broad experience of sport and physical activities thanks to the installation of a new Sunshine Gym.
After initially ordering five stations that can be used by up to nine pupils at any one time, the school ordered another four pieces of equipment to accommodate a further seven students.
The outdoor gym area is used on a regular basis by upper Key Stage 2 and lower Key Stage 2 pupils and a rota is in place to ensure every child has access to the equipment.
Initially the primary school used part of its PE and Sport Premium to fund a Children’s Double Slalom Skier; Double Strength Challenger; Horse Rider; Tai Chi Discs; and Double Health Walker.
Twelve months on and the outdoor gym was such a success it was extended to include another Children’s Double Health Walker; Rower; Waist Twister and an Arm & Pedal Bike.
Rubber mulch surfacing defines the Sunshine Gym area within the school grounds.
As part of its commitment to supporting healthy lifestyles for children, parents and staff, the school also offers active travel infrastructure.
It boosted its cycle parking provision in 2021 with the addition of a Wardale standard shelter and two-hoop Senior Sheffield Cycle Rack from our parent company Broxap Street Furniture.
This complements the school’s two existing New Sheffield Shelters which together accommodate parking for up to 20 bikes.
