Outdoor Learning

Outdoor education at Millfield 


Outdoor education is a key driver at Millfield Primary. This starts when children first enter school in nursery with Meadow Mondays every week and continues in all years throughout their schooling, culminating with upper Juniors taking part in numerous activities including kayaking and canoeing.


Many of these activities are provided by our own experienced staff with external coaches providing more specific activities as needed.


At Millfield we believe that all children should be able to take part no matter what their background. Over the years we have built up significant resources to allow children to take part at extremely low costs and often at no cost at all. We have our own canoes, kayaks and mountain bikes and can fully equip whole classes with full weather specific equipment to go hiking in all terrains and weathers. We can also take up to 40 children camping at a time providing tents, bedding and cooking equipment.









What Parents Say About our Outdoor Learning


"In a world where it is thought that children can no longer ‘play out’ freely and safely, Millfield staff appreciate the importance and value of learning through outdoor play."

What Ofsted Says About our Outdoor Learning


"This school gives pupils a wide variety of experiences, both in and out of school. Rarely does a day go by when a visit or learning in the outdoor environment is not happening. Wellingtons, waterproof suits and walking boots are as much a part of what pupils need for learning as paper and pencils are.” – Ofsted 2019
