Nature Friendly Schools

John Randall Primary School are very excited to be working with Nature Friendly Schools which is a ground-breaking project funded by the Department of Education with support from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and Natural England.

Nature Friendly Schools will be working with us throughout the year helping to developing teachers’ confidence and ability to drive forward outdoor learning in school. Nature Friendly Schools aim is to give thousands of children to get closer to nature benefitting their learning, health and wellbeing, and care and concern for the environment. It will fuel creativity and a sense of adventure, allowing pupils to experience the joy that nature can bring, removing the inequality that currently exists.

Our pupils will benefit from three-quarters of an hour each day, learning skills outdoors and experiencing wildlife on their doorstep including going further afield.

Regular updates will be uploaded on to this page and the class pages, I hope you will check regularly to see what your child/children have experienced this week!
