Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Silver Award
We have achieved an important benchmark by being awarded LOtC Mark (Silver). This is a powerful statement of our strong commitment to providing frequent, continuous and progressive learning outside the classroom (LOtC) experiences to all of our pupils.
Research shows that children learn best through real life experiences. Taking learning beyond the classroom walls makes learning more memorable and appeals to different learning styles. 99% of teachers say that students are more animated and engaged when learning outside the classroom (Opinion Matters survey on behalf of TUI Education Division, 2010).
Learning outside the classroom enables children to interact in new ways with their peers and adults, improving relationships between teachers and pupils, particularly with those students who are hard to reach in the classroom environment.
We are looking forward to continuing to develop our learning outside the classroom and are aspiring to achieve our Gold Mark Award in the near future!
