Outdoor learning advisory visits
We can help you create an inspirational outdoor learning and play space, transform your curriculum and teaching practice, and improve the mental health wellbeing of staff and pupils.
An LtL Advisory Visit will help you develop your grounds into functional and inspiring places for learning and play. While focussing on the process of transforming your spaces, it will also offer guidance on how you can maximise engagement and participation with staff, parents and pupils.
Before you commit to spending time and money on new equipment and changes, please speak to us to start a broader, more flexible and sustainable process of school or nursery grounds transformation.
