Pupils past and present will be able to enjoy a new oasis of calm thanks to a school garden planted in memory of a much loved teacher.

Children at Broughton Fields Primary School have returned after their summer break to a new ‘values garden’ on the school site.

This pleasant and peaceful space is a permanent memorial to the school’s former deputy headteacher Helen Brazier, who passed away earlier this year.

She held the position for 10 years, during which time she shared her great passion for reading with many young students. The garden features a striking spherical water feature, behind which stands a wooden values tree. This mighty oak was specially commissioned for the school’s 10th birthday and displays the values that are important to students and staff.

A beautiful reading chair, engraved with Helen’s name, looks out over the garden with pupils making the most of sitting on the chair and surrounding benches to read through a large collection of books.

Amy from Year 6 said: “I love coming to the garden because it reminds me of Mrs. Brazier. It’s a great place to come and spend time with my friends.”
