Infant, primary and secondary schools in England, Scotland and Wales are being invited to apply for up to £500 worth of free outdoor equipment and two hours of professional outdoor training. This year, the scheme is also open to non-mainstream schools, including pupil referral units.
Schools can choose from over 100 different products to deliver outdoor learning and play. These include:
Den Building Kits
Small Spaces Planters
Litter Picking Kits
Investigating Weather Kits
The funding is being made available through the charity Learning through Landscapes Local School Nature Grant scheme. The charity has been helping schools across Great Britain since 2017. Funded by the players of People’s Postcode Lottery, the grants have so far provided £900,000 worth of equipment to 800 schools.
The programme is only open to schools. Nurseries, pre-schools and gardening groups are not eligible. Reception settings attached to a school (i.e. on the same physical site) are eligible to apply in partnership with a school, but the school must lead the application.
The closing date for applications is the 13th November 2020.
