Erasmus+ 2018 – 20
Bridgelea Primary School was awarded an British Council Grant to research how outdoor learning is experienced by pupils and staff in schools outside of the UK. Staff visited Sweden in October 2018 and April 2019 experiencing both the education system and culture of a new country. A further group visited Latvia in October 2019.
Staff are using their new found knowledge to develop outdoor learning at Bridgelea Primary School.
