Government and Ofsted recommendations:
The links between learning outside the classroom and physical fitness, emotional wellbeing and increased academic results have now been well reported in government and Ofsted reports.
‘When planned and implemented well, learning outside the classroom contributed significantly to raising standards and improving pupils’ personal, social and emotional development.’ Learning outside the classroom, Ofsted, 2008.
‘Emerging evidence suggests an association between being physically active and academic attainment and attention.’
