Countryside Classroom - Connecting schools with food, farming and the natural environment

Growing Schools has been re-launched as Countryside Classroom, the largest ever partnership of organisations who are committed to helping children learn about food, farming and/or the natural environment.

It is the vision of Countryside Classroom that schools and teachers across the UK will embrace food, farming and the natural environment as essential components of a broad and balanced curriculum, incorporating them into day-to-day learning. As a result of this, every child will have the opportunity to learn about and experience these topics in diverse ways that are increasingly supported by experiences outside the classroom.

Natural Connections Demonstration Project

Surveys

Natural Connections Volunteer Survey
The Natural Connections Demonstration Project is working to encourage schools across the south west with their learning outside the classroom in the natural environment (LINE).
If you have volunteered to support schools learning outside with LINE, we invite you to take part in a brief survey lasting about 15 minutes that will ask about your experiences. This information will be an important part of helping the Natural Connections project to understand the ways in which schools are working with and supporting LINE volunteers. Many thanks for your help.

This information will be an important part of understanding the effect LINE is having in schools. Parents and carers views are very important to schools. Many thanks for your help.
