School Wildlife Pond

Wheelchair Accessible Area

Applicant: Highview School/The Beacon

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 has now moved to a new site (The Beacon) and this project has constructed a pond in the grounds of the new school. It nowprovides an educational resource for the children that can be used right across the curriculum with all students.

The project has also made 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 has been planted up with native species.

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