Primary School Enrichment Grants

Better educational


In recent years, East Brighton Trust has increasingly recognised the necessity for varied forms of support within the communities we serve. The impact of austerity measures on education, highlighted by campaigns such as ‘Save Our Schools’ in 2017, highlighted an urgent need for intervention. 

Schools we have helped


St Mark’s Primary School

St Mark’s Primary School used the first instalment of their Enrichment Grant to pay for child-sized outdoor gym equipment for pupils at the school. Not only does the equipment allow the children to get outside in the fresh air to play and take exercise but it also has an impact inside the classroom in the form of improved motor skills. Funding for the second year went towards a secret garden library.

“The garden space has provided the children with a chance to spend time in a quiet, calm outdoor environment, which offers sensory experiences with the plants and a forest school area which encourages the children to learn and explore the wildlife. The space is a haven of calm, where the children can feel removed from worries.”

Moulsecoomb Primary School

East Brighton Trust has supported the school with £10,000 per year for 3 years to pay for things like the breakfast club, after-school club and day trips. Some of the things funded have included: residential trips, heritage activities, samba band sessions, theatre trips, residential trips, bus tickets for day trips, a sewing project, stone age workshops, a toddler group & the nursery “Rhyme and Shine” group.

“I just wanted to write to say a massive thank you from all of us here at Moulsecoomb Primary School; the enrichment grant you have given us over the past three years has allowed us to give countless experiences to our children that we would have otherwise been unable to.”

Moulsecoomb Primary School Headteacher, Adam Sutton
