Visit by Wendy Morton MP

On Friday 19th January 2024, Wendy Morton, MP, had a taste of the outdoor education curriculum that pupils enjoy at Elmwood School.

The visit was organised thanks to Dan Whittaker, Head of Outdoor Learning and his involvement in the All Party Parliamentary Group for Outdoor Learning and to discuss the nationally significant and unique programme of Outdoor Learning we deliver at Elmwood, with its research backed justification, the Theory of Change, as well as discuss the Parliamentary campaign to ensure every pupil in the UK receives a guaranteed and substantial outdoor learning experience as part of the legal entitlement within their education.

Wendy was given the opportunity to witness the breadth and depth of the Out and About curriculum as well as tour the outdoor store, campfire and adventure barn. Whilst at the barn, Wendy had the opportunity to try her hand at riflery and archery and later joined a group that Mr Middleton was leading in axe throwing.  As you can see from the feedback, a great time was had. A targeted visit, indeed.
