School Wildlife Pond

Applicant: Highview School

Project: School Wildlife Pond

Grant award: £3594

Highview School is a day school for pupils between 4 and 19 who have a range of moderate to complex learning disabilities. It will be moving to a new site in 2016 and this project will construct a pond in the grounds of the new school. This will provide an educational resource for the children that can be used right across the curriculum with all students.

The project will also make the area safe by installing a fence and a walkway to allow better access to the pond to all students. The area around the pond as well as the pond will be planted up with native species.

As well as this the students will be given the opportunity to experience working off site at local nature conservation sites carrying out essential maintenance work.
