The benefits of outdoor learning to pupils, teachers and schools.

Posted: 22nd February 2017

The Natural Connections Demonstration project has published new evidence on the benefits of outdoor learning to pupils, teachers and schools.

For the first time, the Natural Connections project provides strong evidence that learning outdoors has multiple benefits for school children. 92 per cent of teachers surveyed said that pupils were more engaged with learning when outdoors and 85 per cent saw a positive impact on their behaviour.

The majority of children also thought they learned better and achieved more when learning outside. 92 per cent of pupils involved in the project said they enjoyed their lessons more when outdoors, with 90 per cent feeling happier and healthier as a result.
