Helmingham Primary School & Nursery

Outdoor Learning at Helmingham

All of this week (22nd - 25th May) every lesson has been delivered outdoors in our wonderful school grounds and the neighbouring woodlands. 

This focussed week is part of our wider commitment to making Helmingham our flagship Outdoor Learning school in Consortium Trust. 

From September, all pupils throughout the school will have weekly opportunities for Forest school sessions, planned and led or supported by qualified and experienced Forest School practitioners.

We will have a brand new, purpose built pavilion for pupils and staff to use as well as fruit and vegetable plots and a wildlife area to enhance their learning.

Pupils are supported to work towards managing significant parts of their own learning and will have decision making opportunities in terms of where and how they learn, what the finished product will be and what resources they will use. 

Every new pupil who registers for the school between 1st July and 1st October 2023 will also receive a free uniform bundle.
