School Grounds and Gardens Development

"Learning outside the classroom is about raising achievement through an organised, powerful approach to learning in which direct experience is of prime importance. This is not only about what we learn, but importantly, how and where we learn. The school grounds are a rich, multi-faceted learning resource on the doorstep."

Many schools in the East Riding already make excellent use of their school grounds as a learning resource.

It is always valuable to share good ideas and helpful information, so if you have outdoor learning activities or facilities within your school grounds that might interest, encourage, or inspire others, please email photos to the address at the foot of the page or arrange with us to take photographs.

If you would like to know more about any of the resources displayed in the photos, please contact the school's headteacher.

The primary schools featured here have kindly provided photographs of their grounds for us to gain ideas from.
