Outdoor space and learning
Our Reception classes enjoy access to outdoor play areas all year round.
We are committed to outdoor learning and have developed the Castle Mead School grounds to include areas for story telling, forest school, wildlife areas, trim (agility) trail, pond, fruit and vegetable gardens, chickens and polytunnels.
Around our site there are designated foot and cycle paths and to support children who cycle, scoot or walk to school there are bike and scooter racks. We do require that children dismount before entering the school grounds.
We recognise that some families live a significant distance from school, or need to drop off on the way to work. We ask that you consider car-sharing or plan to ‘ride and stride’ from a distance away.
Please NEVER obstruct the school gates as it is imperative that emergency vehicles can access the site at all times.
