Our Curriculum

Outdoor Learning

At Coppice, we love learning outdoors!

Stepping outside the confines of the classroom allows our children to breathe in fresh air and experience the therapeutic effects of nature first-hand. Whether it's conducting science experiments in the school garden, exploring local ecosystems during geography lessons, or simply enjoying story time under the shade of a tree, every outdoor activity contributes to our children’s happiness and resilience.


Nature School

Our Nature School starts in Reception and we are currently developing our offer so that it continues up through Key Stages 1 and 2. We have two members of staff who are currently undertaking the Forest School training, to become accredited practitioners and support the development of our practice. 

  • Is a long term process with frequent and regular sessions in a local natural space, not a one off visit.
  • Takes place in a natural environment to support the development of a relationship with the natural world.
  • Aims to promote the holistic development of all those involved.
  • Fosters resilient, confident, independent and creative learners.
  • Builds on an individual’s innate motivation and positive attitude to learning.
  • Offers opportunities to take supported risks appropriate to the environment.
