Havens & Habitats at Sandgate School


Applicant: Sandgate Primary School

Project: Havens & Habitats at Sandgate Primary School

Grant award: £700

The aim of this project is to develop and enhance the exhisting habitats of the outside area of Sandgate Primary School. Native and local species will be used to enhance the flora and the introduction of animal homes will entice and create opportunities for birds, bats and small mammals to use our areas as their home. The project will also see the re-development of the pond with the opportunity to reinstate native plant species that will provide homes for invertebrates and other pond dwelling creatures. As a part of this project schoolchildren will also be given the opportunity to take a trip into the Up on the Downs scheme area and learn about what makes the landscape so special.
