Win Back The Woodchips

This petition had 24 supporters


The ‘woodchips’ is a small recreational area outside of Brentwood County High School (Essex) where students used to be able to go outside, get fresh air, rejuvenate after working hard and prepare for their next lessons. The woodchips was opened in 2014 for the use of students and was greatly received by students of all ages. The woodchips was a centre piece of the school because it is the first thing a visitor sees as they walk in while also contributing to the environment of the school. All was well until the St Clere's co-operative Academy trust took control of the school and enforced lots of new rules. Many of which were reasonable for example no phones in school however they also closed the woodchips for the use of students without any real explanation as to why. Many students have been using the woodchips as a place to relax for many years now including myself for three years. Now being in sixth form I feel that this issue is especially relevant due to the exam stress that I, and many other sixth formers are under. A study by George Suttle et al. has shown that students preform better in class after they have a well rested break time. 

To me it seems that the only solution to this issue is to re open the woodchips,
