Outdoor Learning

At Towngate Primary Academy, we love to work outside. The opportunities available to children through working outdoors allow children to become compassionate, take ownership for their environment, show resilience and excel in every environment.

We are proud to work with Elite Coaching who provide our Forest School’s provision: each week children participate in a lunchtime Forest School Club and pupils across Key Stage Two are timetabled across the year to work with the coaches to utilise and demonstrate an appreciation for the outdoors.
