Secondary Foundations

Secondary Foundations Outdoors is the perfect training to help you make the most of your outdoor spaces, building your staff skills and confidence. This course is ideal for teachers looking to take their first lessons outdoors, and schools who wish to start the journey towards a whole school approach to outdoor learning and play.

Working across year groups – and the whole curriculum – we will explore opportunities for quality outdoor learning to complement existing learning within your setting. The course involves the whole staff team, building on their ideas, assessing their current practice, and addressing common obstacles to delivering effective outdoor learning in a secondary school.

The Secondary Foundations Outdoors course structure covers the following: 

  • Exploring the reasons for taking learning and teaching outdoors, including how it can benefit both pupils and teachers
  • Trying out simple, cost effective, tried and tested lesson ideas to bring all areas of the curriculum to life, improving the learning process
  • Looking at how other schools have taken lessons outdoors across topics and age groups
  • Spending time considering how to deliver more regular and higher quality outdoor learning among all the teaching and classroom support staff in your school

This is a full day, practical course with elements of group work in the classroom, but a significant proportion is outdoors. This includes periods of activity and standing, and being outdoors in all weather for extended periods. Please come dressed for the weather and conditions.
