Allotment

Allotment 1

The school is very fortunate to have acquired a substantial plot on the neighbouring allotments whose entrance is in Yeatman Road. The allotment is maintained by parents, staff and children through an after-school allotment club and is regularly visited by small groups of children within the school day. The Highgate Primary Curriculum provides children with opportunities to plant, nurture, harvest and cook food, providing all children with an understanding of where our food comes from.

The Highgate Allotment Society supports the school with this aim with many allotment holders keen to share the variety of produce on their plots. In the autumn term, produce donated by allotment holders is sold by children in a farmers’ market held in the school playground.
