Learning Outside the Classroom

Herons Dale Primary School provides many opportunities for its pupils to learn and develop through Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) activities and visits and recognise the key role they play in the development of an active curriculum.  This encompasses both on-site and off-site learning, residential activities, environmental studies, sports, physical and cultural activities, business visits, and adventurous activities. 

 Our aim is to ensure every member of our school community accesses LOtC activities throughout their curriculum and that LOtC is considered as an educational entitlement. We believe that every child who attends Herons Dale should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development whatever their age, ability or circumstance.
