Grantham school creates sensory garden after support from Moy Park
A new sensory garden awaits pupils at a Grantham primary school next month.
Poplar Farm School, on Helmsley Road, has created the garden for its pupils, with support from food company Moy Park.
It has been designed as a stimulating and engaging outdoor space that aims 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 adventure for pupils, enabling them to experience challenges and the joy of achievement within a rich and diverse curriculum.
“This unique outdoor space appeals to all the senses and will help our pupils develop their motors skills.
“We’re grateful to Moy Park for supporting us.”
