'Outdoor Classroom' gets thumbs up

An Ofsted report, today released, underlines further the value of outdoor learning to education, adding weight to the government’s 'Learning Outside of the Classroom Manifesto', of which Froglife is a signatory.

The report shows that, when planned and implemented well, learning outside of the classroom contributes significantly to raising standards and improving pupils’ personal, social and emotional development.

The announcement was made at today’s Learning Outside of the Classroom Conference in Greenwich, London. Froglife joined the Wildlife Trust and the RSPB at the event, which is the first of its kind.
