    • puts children and learning at the heart of everything we do.
    • creates learning opportunities which build skills for life and encourage curiosity and exploration.
    • delivers an inclusive and captivating curriculum which provides a range of opportunities in which to participate and excel within and beyond the school day.
    • has culture that enthuses and empowers everyone to take responsibility  and extend their own learning.
    • is a listening school where children and adults know their views are valued, respected and acted upon.

Outdoor Learning

We believe that every child should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development. At Longlands, our outdoor learning experiences include; a Forest School, eco allotment, eco orchard and our award-winning Social Farm. To learn more about our Social Farm and Allotment please click here. Learning outdoors can be enjoyable, creative, challenging and adventurous. It helps children learn by experience and grow as confident responsible citizens who value and appreciate the natural environment. Since 2021, we have started working with the Shropshire Wildlife Trust and Nature Friendly Schools to further progress our school outdoor learning areas and help develop our teachers. We are proud to be an award-winning outdoor learning school.
