Primary Schools Scheme

Over the last six years local Primary Schools in the region have benefitted from our Primary School Scheme which offers schools within a five mile radius of the M6toll the opportunity to apply for funding.

During academic year 2018-19 the Midland Expressway Schools Foundation panel awarded 3 grants of £2,000. All primary schools located within a 5 mile radius of the M6toll corridor were contacted by the Foundation and invited to apply for a grant. The grant is for projects within school to aid the development of students ie: funding of IT equipment, sports equipment, outdoor classrooms etc.

The application process for funding for academic year 2018-19 has now closed.

"The funding from the M6toll is gratefully received and will be used to establish our own first aid club which is something our children have requested themselves" - Jane King, Headteacher

 

St Luke's Church of England Primary School, in Cannock - The Funky Free Rangers 

 

"The children are thrilled after being selected for a grant from the M6Toll School Foundation. During the past few months pupils have been exploring the possibility of creating their own business with the ‘Funky Free Rangers’ becoming a much talked about project within school. The funding will allow us to kick start our business by purchasing our chickens, housing and landscaped areas. " - Shaun Miles, Headteacher

 

St  Anne's Catholic Primary School, in Streetly - Nurture Room

 

"We are thrilled and delighted to receive this cheque for £2,000. It is going to make a real difference to the pupils of St. Anne's. Nowadays, children often face pressures and difficulties in their lives. The nurture room will provide them with a place where they can 'chill out' talk to an adult; receive advice and strategies to help them to deal with their troubling situations. " - Trish Johnston, Headteacher
