On Thursday 13th October 2016 Parents and Carers were invited into Sandon School for a tour of the brand new Sensory Garden.
This fabulous new edition to the Sandon outdoor space was installed during the summer holidays and offically opened in September 2016.
The Garden was completely funded by GANF, FOSA and a grant from the Wolfson Foundation.

"Sandon school is very good because they provide the children with the sensory based learning that is most suited to their educational needs and wellbeing. There are multiple on and off site activities to help our children enjoy school and benefit them in the future".
