Learning Outside The Classroom

Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) is a significant and valuable part of the curriculum for all children here at The Collett School.

It provides our children with challenging, exciting and different experiences to help them learn. LOtC is proven to raise attainment, bolster social, emotional and personal development and contribute to the health and well being of children and young people

Learning outside the classroom is a tool for teaching and learning which has been proven to raise attainment and achievement, improve behaviour and improve the engagement of all groups of pupils, including those who are hard to engage inside the classroom environment.

LOtC takes part in various locations from the high street to the the local park, from woodlands to the countryside. It can include anything from den building to visiting local shops. It is not just restricted to the summer months. It is an all year round activity.

We believe that young people should have access to frequent, continuous and progressive experiences in the school grounds, educational visits further and that these experiences should be utilised as a tool for teaching, learning and delivering the curriculum across all subject areas.
