PKCT provides flexible outdoor learning support for schools from April – July each year. Schools can book up to two sessions and select activities and session themes from a range of suggestions. The DLE Officer then creates a session plan and risk assessment, and delivers the session either on school grounds, or at a nearby site.

In spring/summer term 2023, we delivered 15 sessions to children from 10 primary schools, nurseries, and playgroups.

This was incredibly popular in 2023 so we recommend booking in early if this is of interest.

This provision is also available for independent schools for a fee - please contact the DLE Officer for more information: [email protected]

John Muir Award Support

Where possible, we are keen to help classes to achieve their John Muir Award, and other award schemes they may be working towards.

In 2022/2023 PKCT supported Our Lady’s Primary with a series of sessions, to help their P6/7 and P7 classes complete the second level (Explorer) of their John Muir Award.

Two of the outdoor learning sessions mentioned above, were also organised with the John Muir Trust and involved helping two classes from Fairview School to complete their outdoor learning programme.

If your class is working towards an award, or you would like to explore options for this, please mention it when enquiring about booking sessions. Our DLE Officer will be happy to work with you on this.
