Transforming Teaching

Staveley C of E Primary School, Staveley, Cumbria, LA8 9PH

LOC innovates and enriches our pedagogy whilst helping us to connect more deeply with children and connecting children with nature. The evidence overwhelmingly proves how it engages learners, improves behaviour, increases attainment, supports health and wellbeing and makes learning more enjoyable. This course will help you develop more confidence so you can harness the opportunities that teaching beyond the classroom provides for powerful learning...

Develop a broad, balanced curriculum and maximise the impact of outdoor learning at your school. Whether you are right at the beginning, or are well seasoned implementing LOC in your school, this day is for you and your staff. 

Expect this event to be fully participative, experiential and mostly outdoors. There will be numerous opportunities to share best practice with other passionate colleagues from state and independent settings in your region.
