Learning Outside the Classroom

At The Loyne we believe in teaching pupils in the most engaging way, often within real-world situations. For this reason, we have invested heavily in the development of the school grounds. We are very lucky to now have our own woodland area, a horticulture area with poly-tunnel, cycle track, three outdoor classrooms and a sensory garden. Classes will often be found taking part in lessons within any of these areas, with pupils (KS1-4) all having a weekly timetabled LOtC session.

Within the local area we have a wonderful range of facilities and exciting environments which we are able to utilise for the benefit of our pupils. This can be as regular curriculum activities, one-off educational visits or residential opportunities. Pupils are taught about the local area and how to access the facilities available. On occasions families are invited to join us on some of our educational visits and to share the experience of their children exploring and learning in new outdoor environments.

We believe that at is important for our pupils to appreciate and look after the world they live in. We encourage this through the development of “The Loyne 50 Outdoor Challenges” and seasonal outdoor homework tasks.

In 2015 the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom recognised our exemplary LOtC provision by awarding us a Gold Mark.
