School Grounds Development at Lumley Junior School

The staff and pupils at Lumley Junior School wished to use their extensive field for outdoor learning as well as play.  

The school has already made significant improvements to their grounds with the addition of an adventure trail, MUGA, raised beds, seating and a decked outdoor classroom.  The school contacted OASES to gain ideas and inspiration to take their grounds from good to fantastic!  After a bit of input from OASES the school developed a grand vision which involves the installation of a large pond, a garden, a natural play area, wildflower maze, willow nursery and a woodland (to use for Forest Schools delivery).  All of their ideas were placed into a report and a sketch design was produced to guide the future development of their grounds.
