Grow to School partners with primary schools to take the curriculum outdoors helping children develop the skills for lifelong learning.

Grow to School come to you and deliver curriculum led outdoor learning and food growing sessions in your school grounds. We bring all resources, materials, do all risk assessments and are enhanced DBS checked. See our ‘What we dopages for further information about the types of projects available.

Our mission is to:

  • Put children in touch with where their food comes from through growing, cooking and eating it
  • Help children learn about and care for the natural environment
  • To support schools to take the curriculum outside the classroom and create meaningful learning experiences
  • Help schools to make the most of their outside space

92% of teachers reported that being outdoors led to a positive impact on engaging pupils with learning (Natural Connections, 2016)
