Shaping Spaces can offer schools a tailor made programme to fit around the school timetable. The programme offers students to chance to engage in creating or managing outdoor spaces and has been shown to be an excellent engagement tool for young people struggling in school. We can also link this into the National Curriculum and offer additional accreditations for young people to complete.
Working in the schools grounds means that any transformations will not only benefit the students working on the Shaping Spaces programme but the entire school. Shaping Spaces can offer a variety of services to improve school grounds with students planning, implementing and managing the outdoor area. This can range from creating an entire wild area to planting fruit trees or a small veg plot.
Working within the community to improve outdoor spaces is another option for the programme offered to schools. This can be within parks, community centres, our own managed spaces or a place of your choosing.
