Chestnut Park Primary School has a learning deck at their school that the students have asked to have as an outside area that they can utilise to grow plants and in time vegetables. A lot of the students live in flats (90%) so using this area as an outside learning space is vital for our most deprived students. We have worked with several partner organisations to make this happen, and we currently have applications to funders to support the equipment for the learning deck. To be able to have a undercover area where students can still use the space in the winter.

There is a rota of usage so that as many students benefit from the area as possible, and as the space grows more of the students will be able to access the outside area.
