Oakridge Parochial School is a small, rural primary school at the heart of a thriving village community. It is nestled in the beautiful Cotswold countryside in the village of Oakridge Lynch, situated between Stroud and Cirencester. Staff and parents work together to provide a supportive and nurturing environment for the children.
What do we want?
We're getting a school allotment and we desperately need to raise money to buy some much needed gardening equipment. It's a really exciting opportunity that will help support the children's learning and enrich their curriculum.
We've created our own website to help show people what we're doing and our future plans. Just follow this link: http://www.fromtheground.co.uk
As you can see from this photo, it really is a blank canvas! We're all very excited about transforming it into a productive plot.
Who is this for?
This is for our whole school, to use across a wide range of subjects. The allotment will have a broad number of applications, which will be relevant across the whole curriculum.
Why do we want it?
The new school allotment will provide us with space for hands-on learning and outdoor lessons.
