They also had input in furniture choices and outdoor facilities including play equipment.”
The new school includes a canopied outdoor learning space, an all-weather sports pitch and a wooded area where children can tend ‘mud kitchens’ and their own allotments.
Every formal learning space has its own direct connection to a covered outdoor area which itself connects to play areas.
