St Cecilia's Catholic Junior School aims to be a Nature Friendly School (NFS).
Learning outside the classroom can add real value to students and staff. This project was funded to help schools access these benefits by training staff how to teach out-doors.
The national curriculum is intrinsically linked to learning outdoors and pupil school engagement has been shown to improve when learning takes place outside.
Spending time outdoors has also been shown in a number of studies to improve the mental health and wellbeing of both children and adults.
