Our paid system is also available for schools looking to fully embrace an active education right across the curriculum. See our prices or contact us for more information.
OUR WORK IN SCHOOLS
Benefits of outdoor learning
Helps to reduce childhood obesity
Increased movement and exercise outside of PE lessons offers additional opportunities for children to build healthier lifestyles.
Engages all learners
The Outdoor Classroom supports scaffolded learning techniques set by teachers and differentiated course lengths to support a wide variety of physical abilities.
Boosts mental well-being
Outdoor activities promote positive mental well-being by offering breaks from intense classroom sessions, while remaining educational and valuable.
Develops social skills
Engaging in team work and collaborative learning encourages children to build stronger communication skills and learn about compromise and listening.
Helps to improve cognitive function
Physical activity can improve cognitive function in people of all ages, especially in children which is valuable for improved attainment back in the classroom.
Teaches respect for the natural world
Spending more time outside offers children the ability to develop an understanding of more aspects of nature and the importance of respecting their environment.
The Outdoor Classroom comes in two sizes - BASIC and PREMIUM.
Both plans offer full access to the system for unlimited pupils but the paid tier offers bespoke mapping, premium lesson content, AI course planning and enhanced support.
