We are a primary school that has 2 playgrounds. In the infant playground there is a green outside classroom and raised beds used for growing a variety of fruit and vegetables. And in the junior playground we have flower beds and plans to plant up a tropical bed with mostly hardy exotic or exotic looking plants.
We have a parent and children gardening club and an after school garden club for children only; we also keep chickens.
The children help in the gardens and we have a potato growing competition where each of the classes in phase 2 grow potatoes in containers which are weighed prepared and cooked at the end of term.
The new gardener is renovating the gardens and starting new projects. These include garden days, growing plants to sell at the school fair, and having home grown feast days using as much of our produce that is in season before and after the summer holidays.
