Schools in England, Scotland and Wales are being invited to apply for up to £500 worth of free outdoor equipment and two hours of professional outdoor training to help children connect with nature, become more active, and learn outdoors. Schools can choose from hundreds of different products to deliver outdoor learning and play.
The funding is being made available through phase five of the charity Learning through Landscapes’ Local School Nature Grant scheme, and is funded by the players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
This year, funding will also be open to Early Year’s settings which have their own building and more than five staff.
There will be four funding rounds throughout the year. The closing date for applications for round 4 of the scheme is the 12 November 2021.
