Delph Side C P School, Lancashire

Delph Side CP School is a community school based in Tanhouse, Skelmersdale.  The majority of pupils live in the immediate area on Tanhouse social housing estate, the most deprived ward in Lancashire as highlighted in the Indices of Deprivation 2010.  The school grounds provide the only natural green habitat in the immediate area.

The school received 50 tree saplings from ERS in January 2016, and managed to enlist the help of the Princes Trust Volunteers who kindly helped to plant the tree saplings along an aspect of the school grounds that will provide a hedgerow screening for the two classrooms, and enable safe, uninterrupted outdoor play facilities, free from the distraction and disturbance.

School manager Jo Whitfield has kindly provided some photos from the school’s planting day.
