As a Platinum Eco-School we have been running the Eco-school's programme for many years,so caring for our environment is well embedded in our school. There were however other areas of the local community that we were able to develop to allow our pupils to become fully engaged with, and confident in, their local outdoor environment.
Through developing a woodland area behind our school we were able, thanks to a very generous local family, provide our pupils with the opportunity to regularly learn within the outdoor area.This is developing a strong sense of well-being and high levels of physical activity for pupils. They are able to acquire a useful knowledge of ecology and sustainability whilst developing communication skills by sharing this knowledge with others as well as developing literacy and numeracy skills in an outdoor context.
