Kings Worthy Primary School
About the project:
The school has large grounds comprising both
playgrounds, playing fields and wildlife habitats.
Part of the grounds is
formed by an historic Edwardian garden now containing native
woodlands, ponds, and grassland as well as a limited amount of
ornamental shrubbery. These are a tremendous learning
resource both for the school children during the day and the local clubs that
meet on site. There is also use of the grounds by The Grove,
where adults with learning disabilities attend for day support; they currently work in the
grounds once a week on a therapeutic basis.
The wildlife ponds have in the past
been neglected, being overgrown and underused. By clearing the
area and introducing some low-key paving adjacent, the ponds will
not only be easier to manage but also easier for all to access.
