Our Plans

The area for development is in a corner of the school field. A great sized plot, very close to Hartshill Hayes, I have aimed to design a space that will be stimulating, exciting and offer huge scope for learning across the primary curriculum.


Working with Simon Venn, who kindly created these drawings from my plans, we started work late December 2012.

Where are we?

Situated in Hartshill, near Nuneaton, Warwickshire, the school grounds are extensive and close the Hartshill Hayes.

We also aim to increase the opportunities for children to work outdoors and have real, hands-on contact with the natural world and the outdoors. Over the coming years we aim to:


- Care for a range of animals in school

- Grow our own vegetables and fruits

- Use local resources such as Hartshill Hayes within all elements of

 curriculum work with all classes

- Use outdoor spaces as an integral part of our learning
