All pupils at St Mary’s benefit from using a diverse outdoor learning environment, to support their learning. The school is fortunate to have a large field, woodland habitat walk and woodland area to use for a number of outdoor education activities throughout the year. Key Stage Two also have the opportunity to achieve the John Muir Award each year.
In addition to the use of the outdoors as part of curriculum subjects, all pupils take part in a programme of outdoor learning delivered in conjunction with staff from Buckfast Abbey Education Centre. This is based on OWL (Outdoor Wild Learning) wisdoms.
