Provision for outdoor learning was good or better in two thirds of the providers surveyed. Pupils’ wellbeing, behaviour and physical development have all improved as a result of learning outdoors. Schools and non-maintained settings also work well with parents to support their provision. However, outdoor learning isn’t used enough to develop skills in areas such as mathematics and ICT. Teachers assess children’s learning less often and less well outdoors, which means important milestones may be missed.
