Landscapes Naturally's services fall into 4 distinct areas:
Outdoor Learning and Play
Using your outdoor environment can bring a vital extra dimension to all curriculum areas, as acknowledged by OFSTED.
Landscapes Naturally is very experienced in developing bespoke programs for EYFS, primary, secondary and special schools. Whatever your site whether it is urban or rural, small or large we can help you to maximise its potential as a learning and play resource. We run workshops for children, team teaching programs to support and develop outdoor learning and inspirational INSET for support and teaching staff.
Please contact us to discuss your needs. It is only in a conversation that we can truly explore your aims, ambitions and the potential solutions that we can offer to ensure positive outcomes for your children.
Advice, Consultancy and Fundraising.
Committing to an outdoor learning programme and utilising your open spaces is an incredibly fulfilling and worthwhile undertaking but it can be a daunting one too. Where on earth do you start? How much is it all going to cost, how are you going to find the time, how are you going to fund it and how are you going to involve the children, parents and other parties?
Landscapes Naturally can be your partner and will guide you through the whole process which normally starts with a site visit and an initial discussion with key parties and it's from this that we can identify the next steps in developing your outdoor space.
We are also experienced fundraisers and can help with ideas and bid writing to bring additional funds to your project.
A learning vision
One of the real benefits of this sort of programme is raising attainment through engaging the whole school community in transforming outdoor learning and play. Landscapes Naturally has a real skill in inspiring learning and bringing together all the interested parties from key members of staff to parents & governors and of course the children. This might be through delivering INSET, running hands-on children's workshops or speaking at a teacher/parent event and it's this independent involvement which ultimately helps generate a shared vision for your outdoor environment as well as making change happen.
Every school values outdoor learning and play and wants to make the best use of their grounds, but how do you turn this aspiration into a reality? Landscapes Naturally has over 20 years project management experience from small schemes to major projects - from low/no cost to £300,000 + schemes. Design, site management, dealing with and getting the best out of contractors, training and helping secure funding are all areas where we've got expertise and our involvement really can make a difference to the successful outcome of your project.
