I hope this Summer BHee newsletter finds you safe and well.
Whilst this period of home learning and uncertainty about schools reopening is a difficult time, there are many conversations about how we can change education for the better.
Recent govenment guidelines have suggested ‘utilising outdoor space' as one of the protective measures to ensure education settings remain safe. Outdoor Learning has also been shown to have beneficial effects on children's mental and physical wellbeing and academic achievement.
We are keen to support schools in developing their Outdoor Learning and hope you are able to come along to the webinar detailed below.
