The ethos of outdoor learning is based on a fundamental respect for children and young people and for their capacity to instigate, test and maintain curiosity in the world around them. It believes in children’s right to play; the right to access the outdoors (and in particular a woodland environment); the right to access risk and the vibrant reality of the natural world; and the right to experience a healthy range of emotions, through all the challenges of social interaction, to build a resilience that will enable continued and creative engagement with their peers and their potential.

We are very lucky to have a fire pit and outdoor learning area within the school grounds. We also visit the nearby woods where we have a Forest School site which is fantastic for a range of outdoor learning activities. All year groups access this a minimum of three times a year.
