As well as providing plenty of storage space in our high-quality new homes, we have also helped to make sure that a Monmouthshire primary school has enough storage for its learning equipment!

Our £250 donation to Castle Park Primary School in Church Road, Caldicot – near to our Cwrt yr Eglwys development – is paying for new store cupboards for the Foundation Stage area.

The cupboards will mean that not only can equipment be stored safely, but it can also be easily accessed by the school’s four and five-year-old pupils.

Jon Keohane, deputy headteacher at Castle Park Primary School, explains: “A colleague and I visited the Cwrt yr Eglwys site to get some literature and while talking to the staff there we found out Taylor Wimpey might be able to make a donation for a project at the school.

“We came back and identified that we desperately needed storage for the Foundation Stage area, so we went back to Taylor Wimpey and the rest, as they say, is history. The donation which they have made is very kind.

“Foundation Stage is all about learning through play and so to enable that, we have a lot of equipment. The cupboards we’ve ordered will allow the equipment to be stored away safely and also enable the children to access it independently. It will make a world of difference to the children’s independence in learning.”

Sara Taylor, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey South Wales, says: “As a local housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build, so we were delighted to fund the new storage for the Foundation Stage at Castle Park Primary School, which is just down the road from our Cwrt yr Eglwys development in Caldicot.

“We hope the new cupboards will improve the children’s environment and make a real difference to their learning in reception.”

Cwrt yr Eglwys currently offers a choice of five-bedroom homes.
