Effective use of the outdoor environment at Treffos School

Treffos School focuses strongly on using the outdoor environment as a resource to stimulate learning. The school has extensive outdoor areas that are used well to develop pupils’ understanding of their environment and the importance of both a healthy body and a healthy mind.

A wide range of learning experiences happens outside including problem-solving activities such as bridge building and orienteering. Teachers make regular use of purposeful trips to local forests and beaches and use these well to stimulate further discussion and learning back at school.
