Poplar Farm School in Grantham has created a new sensory garden for its pupils, with support from local food company Moy Park.
A sensory garden is a stimulating and engaging outdoor space designed to improve physical fitness, health, mood and cognition.
The school received a grant from Moy Park’s £1 million Community Support Fund which was established in 2020 to support organisations local to its operations across Europe.
Poplar Farm School Headteacher Kate Hodson said: “We believe that learning should be an amazing adventure for all pupils, enabling them to experience challenge and the joy of achievement within a rich and diverse curriculum.
We’re grateful to Moy Park for supporting us and our students on this journey through the Community Support Fund which has allowed us to create a new sensory garden.
This unique outdoor space appeals to all the senses and will help our pupils develop their motors skills while spending time outdoors and learning more about plant care.”
