Outdoor Learning

This page is currently being updated and so some of the documents may not be fully accurate.  Whilst this page is under construction, please contact the main office if you require any of the documents.

We pride ourselves in our outdoor provision. The children are encouraged to go outside in all weathers and to help facilitate this we provide waterproofs and wellington boots.


Our outdoor area provides a vast amount of experiences that we would not be able to offer inside alone. The children are encouraged to take part in adventurous play, take care of the environment, join, plan and share experiences with their friends and to be as imaginative as they like.


The garden has a range of environments which are available throughout the year including:

  • An Outdoor Kitchen
  • A Woodland Walk
  • A Pond
  • An Allotment
  • An Orchard Area
  • A Trim Trail
  • A Wigwam
  • A Bird Hide
  • The Acorn Suite – Outdoor Classroom


Staff carefully observe the children and join their play to see clear interests that are developing. Additional resources and enhancements are then added to areas to support the interest and to allow for further questioning and challenge.


As with inside the main classrooms, the children are encouraged to help to keep the school clean and tidy and are encouraged to help to take care of their environment.
