Sensory garden renovation

In 2019 we raised funds to renovate the garden space attached to our Early Years Foundation Stage classrooms (ages 4-7) at Park House School. The Supervisors and Instructors of the classes put together a planned layout for the garden to utilise the space and make it more engaging for the pupils.

The project included resurfacing the garden and fitting the area with specialist equipment, creating a fun and engaging place for our pupils to learn and play. The equipment provides a new range of learning opportunities from building peer relationships to developing motor skills. With beach huts, slides, water play and chalkboards the space has been completely transformed for our pupils.

We are extremely grateful to everyone who supported during the fundraising process and helped to raise over £10,000 for the project. Special thanks to the following people, without whom the project could not have been the same.

  • The Hedley Foundation: £3000
  • Span Trust: £3900
  • Andrew Robertson & his sponsors (challenge event): £3400

Having a set space for our younger learners has meant that they can work on their imaginative play and communication skills in a sensory driven environment. The pupils have enjoyed using the garden to explore and enhance their sensory needs and this had led to some lovely peer interactions!
