We believe that young people should have access to frequent, continuous and progressive experiences in the school grounds, educational visits further afield, and residentials, and that these experiences should be utilised as a tool for teaching, learning and delivering the curriculum.

The school has used Forest Schools, to benefit vulnerable children. Having seen the benefits these children experience, the aim is for all children to access these through expanded opportunities both through Forest School and curriculum based LINE activities.
The school has a united staff team that actively support all school plans and initiatives. The school works to ensure that all staff not just classroom staff , children, governors and parents understand and have the opportunity to discuss what the school is trying to achieve with LINE The School joined the Natural Connections project to share with and learn from other local schools and to contribute to the research evidence developing around LINE.

Overuse of outdoor environments can take away the excitement of getting outside and there is a balance to ensure that the element of excitement in working outdoors is kept. The feeling was children needed time to get used to working outdoors and understand that expectations for work were no different …the more regularly you do it, the more they understand that actually the expectations of behaviour and what they produce in their learning are that same as it is in the classroom… Staff considered going outside was easier in the summer for weather reasons and for subjects such as science and geography which they thought lent themselves naturally to working outside.
Challenges to LINE The school were addressing challenges in using local greenspace by Having risk assessments for all local spaces in walking distance. Obtaining blanket permission from parents to visit local spaces.
