Big Lottery Fund

Knighton Mead Primary Academy is excited to announce that we were awarded a Big Lottery Fund grant to contribute towards the EYFS Canopy.

  • The Big Lottery Fund is the largest funder of community activity in the UK. It puts people in the lead to improve their lives and communities, often through small, local projects.
  • It is responsible for giving out 40% of the money raised by National Lottery players for good causes. Every year it invests over £650 million and awards around 12,000 grants across the UK for health, education, environment and charitable purposes.
  • Since June 2004 it has awarded over £8 billion to projects that change the lives of millions of people.

Our newly installed canopy will further support our outdoor provision in the EYFS and allow children to access the outdoors in all weathers.
