Pupils at Barnwell School can now take time out between lessons and studying to enjoy a game of outdoor table tennis, thanks to the generosity of local Councillors, Doug Bainbridge, Matthew Hurst and Alex Farquharson. The councillors, together with Stevenage MP Stephen McPartland, visited Barnwell to see the tables in use and demonstrate some of their own hidden talents.

Stephen McPartland MP said, "It was great to try out table tennis at Barnwell School and a big thank you to the local Councillors who donated the money to provide these facilities. The students were certainly enjoying themselves and explained how they appreciate the quick break from studies to recharge themselves."

Funding was provided through the Stevenage Borough Council local community budget to pay for two outdoor tables on the Upper School Campus. Since the tables were installed, at the start of term, they have proved very popular with Barnwell students, and are in regular use (weather permitting!).

Stephen McPartland, Member of Parliament for Stevenage, was pleased to welcome 1decision founder Hayley Sherwood to Parliament. The video-led PSHE programme developed by 1decision empowers children to make choices to keep the featured characters safe and healthy.

Stephen McPartland MP said, “1decision is a fantastic platform which provides children with essential information to encourage positive choices.

“I was very impressed with how interactive 1decision is and how engaged the children were. It is a great tool to help children on how to behave safely in a range of situations.”

Hayley Sherwood said, “It was a wonderful occasion to be able to showcase our programme to the policy-makers who attended.

"Through effective PSHE education children need to understand personal boundaries and gain the knowledge, vocabulary and confidence to cope when they are faced with a difficult situation or dilemma. By empowering children with these skills they will know what to do if they come across something they think is wrong. For the current generation, this will help them as future adults, and in turn their children, and with a sustained effort we can improve society long-term. Education is the solution.”

1decision is part of Headway, a social enterprise to help provide our children, and those who teach them, with the most up-to-date, sophisticated, high quality and engaging materials possible.
