Outdoor Learning and ECO

Curriculum intent

To get Outdoor Learning embedded within teaching at Sandown we focus on:

  • Creating links within the national curriculum and teaching in a variety of different locations.
  • Learning about, in and through the environment.
  • Creating autonomous teachers that feel confident taking learning outdoors where appropriate.
  • Creating a school that is mindful about the environment and is taking steps to become a more eco school.
