Swaffield School

Outdoor Learning

Learning outside is an integral part of school life whether it is planting seeds and caring for plants or a variety of other lessons, such as Maths, which maximise the benefits of being outdoors. 

Swaffield has a wonderful outdoor classroom where children in every year group are able to learn in a wonderful garden environment and connect with nature and the world around them.

Swaffield is delighted to have strong links with the wonderful urban oasis Paradise Cooperative and children regularly take part in workshops at their site in Heathfield Road. In addition to learning about nature in this wonderful environment, they also build social and teamwork skills, independence and leadership skills too.
