Hunton CEP School places a great deal of importance on developing a positive and productive relationship between the school, parents and the wider community.
We identified a patch of underutilised land and together with parents set about the building of 3 large planters. This has afforded opportunities for our Reception children to develop a range of skills in the areas of learning. The pupils planted flowers, and food that was cooked to say thank you to the parents who built and installed the planters.
The school, PTA, parents and staff teamed together to convert a patch of lawn (that was unusable during winter months) into a 'quiet area' which alllowed pupils to use the area all year round. Pupils are able to read, draw and socialise in this new area at break times. It also provided an additional outside space for learning.
Renewal of Fences
The school enlisted the help of the MCVP, a team of volunteers to source materials and labour for fences around the quiet area and to section off the pond. It was wonderful way to further strengthen the community links. Many thanks to all of the volunteers who contributed.
Recently, a team of parents and staff worked together to develop and install an amazing sensory garden which has been a popular part of the outdoor area. Thank you again for all who helped in making this new area become a reality.
