Roskear Primary and Nursery School enjoy new yard

Linden Homes South West Support Roskear Primary And Nursery School

In the south-west, our team works closely with schools and nurseries to encourage physical activity, build team working skills and to educate children on construction safety and housing sustainability.

As part of their duty of care, nurseries are required to provide a safe place for children to play, which can be difficult to achieve given government funding cutbacks. Last year, Roskear Primary and Nursery School in Camborne, Cornwall, was a school on special measures, and was finding it difficult to fulfil the children's wish of creating a ‘builder’s yard’ since they had watched construction works take place on Linden Homes’ new Boslowen site.

We were pleased to step up and help create the new yard, including giant plastic building bricks and tools, which was warmly welcomed by headteacher Tamsin Lamb.

The builder’s yard marks the first step in a long relationship between our business and the school, with children having been invited to take part in a colouring competition for use with future hoarding. A school site visit is also planned, allowing the children to see the difference between ‘old and new’ buildings, and Roskear Primary and Nursery School has since become a recommended school.

Linden Homes South West's PR manager and community champion, Anju Sarpal, said: “It is always a pleasure to support local school children, and we are thrilled at the students' uptake of the builder’s yard. It is also encouraging to see their enthusiasm to learn more about building and sustainability within their own community.”
