Edward Atkinson Fund and Camblesforth Parish Council support local young budding scientists

A Selby headteacher has praised Camblesforth Parish Council for providing additional help in supporting a village school.

Mr Dave Card, Head of School at Camblesforth Community Primary Academy, applied for funding through the parish council’s Edward Atkinson Fund to pay for waterproof clothing so children could take part in outdoor education. The Atkinson Fund is managed by the Parish Council and was established as a charity to benefit young people in Camblesforth – it continues to be able to do this due to the generosity of a local farmer who rents a field from the Parish Council.

The fund usually has a £200 limit, but chairman Cllr Neal Yates recommended the full £639.60 should be approved which was fully supported by all Parish Counsellors.

“The money will be used for the benefit of residents’ children and the parish council is very happy to help support its local school,” said Cllr Yates.
“I’d also like to thank parish councillor Denise Kempton for her time in liaising with the school and helping establish the excellent relationship we have with them.”

Mr Card is very grateful for the support. He said: “We are delighted that the council has awarded the full amount needed so we can develop our Forest Schools provision. We are lucky to have a stimulating outdoor environment and we want to make best use of it – our children will be able to take part in outdoor learning whatever the weather.”

Camblesforth Community Primary Academy is part of Ebor Academy Trust, which operates 24 schools across Selby, York, the East Riding and The Humber and on the Yorkshire Coast.
