A current development within the schools curriculum is the utilisation of our outdoor environment in order to further enhance and engage learning. The academy upholds the belief that children and young people are stimulated by the outdoors and typically experience, over time, an increase in their self belief, confidence, learning capacity, enthusiasm, communication and problem-solving skills and emotional well-being. When learning outdoors children can develop their team working skills and also learn to become more independent.
School endeavours to develop these skills alongside the formal curriculum through providing challenging learning which enables children to take risks to deepen their understanding and build their skills as learners.
