Nurture Garden: Gorsemoor Primary School
Our children's self esteem grew, and some said they enjoyed this more than PE! The garden will be here for years to come, so the children who need alternative ways to learn can grow and succeed too.
Jo Cranwell - Teacher
Primary schools often have a Nurture Group, which supports pupils with alternative opportunities to learn and succeed outside a traditional curriculum. The Nurture Garden at Gorsemoor Primary school did just that. Through designing and building their own space to learn outdoors and do green exercise, it enabled children to develop their social and personal skills. Teamwork and problem solving outside the classroom, such as connecting solar powered water fountains, to successfully growing carrots, gave the pupils an enormous sense of achievement, boositng self esteem and their hunger to learn.
