(UK) Woodley: Special school adds $96K sensory garden

Oct 14, 2021, Reading Chronicle: Woodley school celebrates opening of new sensory garden for SEND students

Pupils at Addington School are having outdoor fun in their new sensory garden, which opened recently. Funded jointly by Wokingham Borough Council and fundraising by Addington Association, the £70,000 [$96K] project gives opportunities for children to play and learn in a sensory environment that has been designed to be accessible and engaging. Based in Woodley, Addington School is purpose built as a specialist school for children aged three to 19 with special educational needs and disabilities…. Cllr Graham Howe, executive member for children’s services, visited Addington School to see the new sensory garden and said: “It was fantastic to see the children enjoying playing in the new sensory garden. They clearly were getting a lot of enjoyment out of the space and I’m pleased the council could support the school to have it built. “Schools like Addington are so important for our children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities, and you could see the hard-work and dedication Ms Attra and her team put into caring for and teaching their pupils. The sensory garden is a great addition to the school.”
