EKO works directly with schools, to support teachers in the delivering of outdoor education.
We can offer the following:
- Weekly outdoor learning sessions in school time with a class or particular year or nurture group. Many schools use their PE and Sport Premium to fund their EKO sessions, other schools use it as PPA time and others use it as an opportunity for staff to team teach and upskill so that they will be able to run their own curriculum linked outdoor learning sessions in the future.
- Forest School Clubs which run weekly. These are based on Forest School principles run outdoors on the school site for a group of 16 pupils.
- Bespoke one-off days and/or half days with a particular class or year group which can take place either on your school site or at our wonderful new outdoor learning site at Weston Park.
- Staff CPD. We run Level 2 & Level 3 Forest School Leader training at Weston Park throughout the year. We can also deliver curriculum linked outdoor learning sessions at your school either as a full day or a twilight session.
