are your school grounds working hard enough?

Learning beyond the classroom is a powerful pedagogy that has been shown to engage children of all ages and abilities.  It offers opportunities to hone new skills, apply classroom learning to purposeful, collaborative projects and discover new ways to stretch their intellectual, physical and emotional boundaries.  Your school grounds - whether they're richly diverse or a grey-and-green desert - are the perfect place to begin.

A planned, co-designed outdoor learning curriculum will add depth to children's learning and can also contribute to initiatives to improve behaviour, raise attainment and attendance.  The Play Learning Life team has over 25 years' experience of working alongside schools to make the most of the special nature of school grounds.
