How our Opportunities Funds promote inclusivity in schools

A local primary school recently used part of their Opportunities Fund, awarded by Walton Charity, to buy two bikes and cycle helmets so that pupils whose families are unable to afford bikes can still take part in the school’s Bikeability training scheme.

Walton Charity awards Opportunities Funds to local schools each year to support students from low-income families with learning and other enrichment activities, ensuring they have access to the same opportunities as other students.

The school’s Business Manager believes the extra funding is important for ensuring all students can take part in activities and learn skills that will help them in the future.

The Opportunities Fund really helps with promoting inclusivity at our school and ensuring no one is missing out.
