Curriculum for Excellence offers opportunities for all children and young people to enjoy first-hand experience outdoors, whether within the school grounds, in urban green spaces, in Scotland’s countryside or in wilder environments.
Such experiences inspire passion, motivating our children and young people to become successful learners and to develop as healthy, confident, enterprising and responsible citizens.
The core values of Curriculum for Excellence echo the key concepts of outdoor learning: challenge, enjoyment, relevance, depth, development of the whole person and an adventurous approach to learning.
Learning in the outdoors at our centre is just as valuable as learning indoors. We want the children to experience the changing seasons, the weather, wildlife, planting and growing as well as just being able to explore and play.
We believe that there is no such thing as bad weather only bad clothing. We will use the outdoors every day and in all weathers and we have our own waterproof suits. We do ask that all parents provide suitable waterproof and warm clothing, cosy socks and a pair of Wellington boots for their child.
