Lower Fields

Lower Fields Primary School has extensive grounds which they are using to extend their classrooms into an outdoor activity centre. A neglected nature area was transformed as part of the E Schools project as well as development of a horticultural area.

Cathy Fowler works at the school, facilitating the weekly gardening club and supporting school staff with outdoor sessions. She also oversees the management of the outdoor areas.
