We are a group of parents and children from St Andrew's Primary School, Bath.
Alice, Anna, Antonio, Lizzie, Sophia, Hana and Oliver.
We are running the BATHHALF MARATHON and FAMILY FUN RUN for 'Sue East's Playground' a fundraising project dedicated to our inspirational Headteacher that recently passed away.
Sue's Niece created a GoFundMe page to fundraise for a new playground, a project close to Sue's heart.
'Sue was a pioneering creative force in primary education. She was at the forefront of the School Without Walls (SWW) programme and regularly shared her expertise on this at a national level. She understood the value of her pupils taking their learning outside of the classroom and into creative and cultural settings in Bath and beyond. She enlisted artists, musicians, designers and academics from universities across the country to collaborate on a spectrum of creative educational initiatives.
Sue also understood the importance of the school’s physical environment and its impact on the wellbeing and academic achievement of each child. The St Andrew’s Green Classrooms report was developed in 2017 by parents who enlisted the help of environmental scientists, architects and local universities. Based on the latest research, it provides guidance on specific and measurable improvements that can be made to every classroom and outdoor space at St Andrews, to promote wellbeing and enhance learning outcomes. The playground refurbishment is part of this strategy and I’d love to see it come to fruition, for Sue'
