Over the last year, we have prioritised the development of our outdoor environment so that it can be used by teachers to extend learning beyond the classroom. The photos below show the space that we have created.
For the academic year 2023-24, we intend to support teachers with ideas and ways of using the outdoor environment to enhance our curriculum further. All staff will be provided with training to support the development of an outdoor learning curriculum so that they are ready to learn and willing to try new learning approaches themselves. Staff will be working with Dave Harvey, who works with the IOL https://www.outdoor-learning.org/ to establish and deliver the 'Enabling Outdoor Learning' INSET programme.
