Outdoor Learning Project

In order to further promote the delivery of the curriculum outdoors, the Department will provide additional funding in the current financial year specifically for pre-schools, nursery schools and primary schools to purchase outdoor play equipment to enhance curriculum delivery outdoors.

DE is also providing further funding to those primary schools with nursery units to utilise specifically for the nursery unit.  

Specific guidance for schools / pre-schools which provides details of the Outdoor Learning project’s rationale, aims and objectives; eligibility and financial arrangements; monitoring, resourcing and evaluation; together with links to useful resources can be found here:
