Creative Partnerships: Outdoor Learning at Belvue School

imageCollaboratively developing learning environments at a school for young people with special educational needs.

Belvue is a secondary day school in Northolt for young people with special educational needs. The school would like to make more use of its outdoor space for both learning and playing. The team were asked to develop proposals for the use of outdoor space both in a learning and play capacity.

This participative development fed into Peter Fink of FORM Associates designs to develop the grounds and play spaces at the school and create a much more useable, cohesive and exciting outdoor learning environment. Our initial role was to work with the staff and pupils to ascertain the current barriers to using the outside space. We experimented with different materials, activities and props to encourage exploration of the outdoors.
