The best playgrounds offer students loads of activities to amuse and stimulate.  Others are literally full of children. Either way, school playgrounds are busy places  – yet they are also places where a child can feel very lonely.  For SEND students, especially those on the autistic spectrum, and for children experiencing social or emotional difficulties, a quiet area can offer a haven of safety.

A garden can also provide:

  • A safe space for mentoring
  • An outdoor prayer space
  • Opportunities for a gardening club
  • A sensory area for KS1 lessons
  • A resource for lessons in English, Art, Science & PSHE

        • project-managing community input on digging and planting
        • providing ideas for use in the curriculum
        • organising volunteers to work with children on maintenance
