Every school has the space and potential for making its grounds and buildings more wildlife friendly.
There are hundreds of ways to encourage wildlife into your school grounds, from installing a birdbath, to mowing the grass less often, or digging a new pond. Animals and plants can thrive in all types of places, no matter the size or location.
If you would like your school grounds assessed for their current wildlife-friendly status and bespoke advice for specific areas for action at no charge, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Getting pupils involved in thinking of ideas is a great way to encourage them from the start.
Example of work at St Mary’s Primary School, Purton:
Wildlife features include a log pile habitat, bug chalet, rocky habitat and wildlife-friendly planting, creating a stimulating corner for children to play or work, as well as a valuable teaching resource for discovering nature.
In addition to emailing us direct, there’s a wealth of support resources and ideas to be found online.
