In 2012 we dedicated our Wild Garden to Barry Aldridge.
Barry was fundamental in the development of our school garden, 
his enthusiasm and joy of all things outdoors
was truly inspirational.

Our school community
expressed their love and
respect for Barry, and 
generously raised enough 
money for a beautiful 
hand-carved bespoke bench
Our ‘otter bench’ sits proudly in the garden
for all to enjoy.

 

Our new log cabin provides an excellent outdoor classroom for our children

 

 

Some examples of how we are using our outdoor classroom to enhance our curriculum.
