Loxford has been chosen to be the site of an Edible Playground. Over the summer holiday the charity Trees for Cities will transform the area behind our school canteen into a vibrant outdoor space that aims to excite and teach Loxford students about growing and eating healthy food. By instilling healthy eating habits at an early age, Edible Playgrounds can help to tackle obesity, food poverty and lack of access to nature head on and provide a platform for fun and engaging lessons that support our school curriculum. Students from a variety of years will have dedicated areas to grow food which will be used in their lessons. This is all possible through the support of Bulb which is a renewable energy company.
We are also transforming more of the space into a mindfulness area where students can sit and relax during break and lunchtime in a quiet area. We will publish updates on how the project is developing, until then please look at the plans and photographs so you can get an idea of what will be created.
