We have been working towards development of our outdoor spaces with a new project ‘Outdoor Learning, Well Being & Mindfulness Project’ on site. The aim is to establish a ‘farm to fork’ culture in school; growing fresh produce on site and use of produce in food technology classes, therefore educating students in growing, preparing and using fresh produce. The outdoor spaces around the forest and horticultural areas will be used for outdoor learning and reflection. A new accessible pathway has been installed around the horticultural area together with raised beds and wooden benches built on site. A potting shed has been installed, new fencing is underway and the polytunnel will be refurbished shortly.
We would like to thank the following organisations for their funding donations to make this project possible;
- Crown Purchasing Consortium
- Clothworkers Foundation
The area is still being completed and photos will follow soon.
This is an exciting project for our school and a great development of our outside spaces.
