Outdoor Learning

Outdoor learning is an important part of a pupil's life. It gives pupils new experiences, is motivating and gives opportunities to use skills in different ways. It enhances communication skills, physical skills and sensory awareness. Outdoor learning is vital for children to connect with nature.

As with all our curriculum, outdoor learning is tailored to the needs of each pupil.
