A registered charity since 1984, we are a small but dedicated group of parents/carers and staff who work tirelessly to raise funds for the Warren school to enable them to maintain and build upon their resources and curriculum.
'A Special Playground for a Special School'
This is our most ambitious project to date and will require funding of £188,000 to transform the main playground into a specialised outdoor learning environment. As the number of learners on the roll is ever-increasing, Warren school has already advanced into all possible spaces within the building. There are no more opportunities left to extend classrooms or site mobile classrooms.
Many of our current playground and sensory garden equipment is no longer able to be used, it is considered unsafe, so it is out of bounds to our learners.
New Project Design
The overall design has been laid out into different learning zones, creating a unique, inclusive, sensory-rich, and challenging outdoor or accessible for all learners regardless of individual need and disability, with the means to be used as an extension to the school's curriculum.
We have worked in partnership with Timotay Playscapes, an award-winning playground and play space provider. Together, we have finalised our design concept, which uses play and educational benefits through natural and sensory exploratory elements.
As you can imagine, the cost of such specialised resources has an expensive price tag, which makes it challenging to afford to accomplish this transformation all at once. We are therefore aiming to achieve this project via a phased approach.
Our Aviva Community Fund Crowdfunder project page will fund the 'SENSORY ZONE AND RAINBOW WALK' we hope to reach £14,000
We have been diligently applying for grant schemes and funding towards the overall costs. We want to offer this opportunity to businesses to become involved in this unique project. Timotay Playscapes have put together sponsorship packages for companies or individuals to support, including the business advertisement, logo use for backing and funding.
