Outdoor Learning Success Stories: PRInOL webinar

In place of our annual conference, we had a successful webinar on 27 January 2021. The theme was ‘Success in 2020’, and over 120 people listened to ways in which our presenters were engaging with different people through teaching and learning outdoors. Our thanks to everyone who took part – for the presenters who uplifted us by sharing their work (and keeping to time!) and to everyone who joined in with the chat.

Creating Happy and Healthy Schools through Outdoor Learning

Measuring health and well-being in schools can be challenging. This new toolkit, is designed to help schools to assess physical activity levels stimulated by different lessons and monitor how children feel when learning outside and inside the classroom. It is based on research undertaken as part of the Naturally Healthy Devon Schools project, funded by a partnership including the Campaign to Protect Rural England (Devon), the Institute of Health and Community, University of Plymouth, and Natural England. For the online version, please refer to the file Creating Happy and Healthy Schools though Outdoor Learning Toolkit for the main text. This explains the research background and how to use the other resources provided. Hard copies of the toolkit are also available on request from
