Outdoor Learning

One of key part of our school vision is to develop our outdoor learning in order to provide our children with a rich experience. Below are a selection of the opportunities we provide for our children including a map of the various zones created to support our children’s well being, imagination and fitness.

We have invested in establishing orienteering courses around our school grounds. During the year, children take part in outdoor learning. Pupils in Year 5 and 6 have an exciting sleep over at school, taking part in two days of leadership activities. We are very fortunate to be able to invest in these activities through our school budget, our generous PTA (Parent Teacher Association) and the Alpkit Foundation.

We are passionate about our children embracing our wonderful rural environment and where appropriate, utilising this in our curriculum.
