RHS Award of Garden Merit
The Award of Garden Merit is a long-established annual award for plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society. It is based on assessment of the plants’ performance under UK growing conditions.
We have recently applied for a Level 3 Award and hope to be successful in our application.
What Does Our School Do?
In Foundation Stage playgrounds, the staff and pupils have been growing fruit and vegetables for a couple of years now. They have been enjoying finding out about growing potatoes in sacks and planting gooseberry bushes.
We have our very own Gardening Club for our Year 1 pupils. The children have really enjoyed learning all about gardening and having a go themselves.
In May 2018, we planted out some fruit and vegetables in our new plot on upper playground. We had so much fun and can’t wait to see it all grow. We finally have our compost bin too!
Our future plans include:
- rain water butts
- the development of our school allotment
