Kerrie Longley, head of academy at the school on Long Lane, Carlton in Lindrick, said: “As a school, we like to nurture the children’s curiosity about their natural environment.
“These hedgehog homes will help us to grow the children’s understanding of how to care for animals in nature.”
According to People’s Trust for Endangered Species, the number of rural hedgehogs has declined nationally by between 30 and 75 per cent since 2000.
Gary Chambers, Barratt Homes Sheffield managing director, said: “We hope our donation will give hedgehogs a new and safe home at Kingston Park, while also encouraging the pupils to consider the wildlife near their own homes.”
