Outdoor learning is an important aspect of education for children as it has many physical benefits as well as supporting pupils mental health. MedEquip4Kids are seeking funds to provide Green Fold Special School with an Accessible Planter which will allow all pupils to get involved with gardening and the planting of flowers, vegetables and herbs. They will learn to care for them throughout the year, enjoy watching them grow and be able to experience their tastes and scents.

Traditional planters often provide a physical barrier to learning and are not accessible to learners who are wheelchair users. The planter selected is L-shaped with multiple planting and potting areas at different heights to enable access from all sides and enough clearance for wheelchair users. It is sturdy and hard wearing with a 10 year guarantee against rot and insect damage which means pupils will benefit from its use for years to come. Although the garden space and planter will be used mostly by the 55 upper school pupils, it will also be accessible for the 60 Reception pupils of the partner mainstream school and will allow interaction between the two groups.

The pupils will learn new skills and an awareness of the natural world around them and encourage them to look after it which will benefit the wider community.

“The team are really appreciative of the AccuVein AV400  as it now ensures staff can always wear gloves when trying to feel for veins that have previously been difficult to palpate, which given the current pandemic is even more essential.”
