Grants of £500 are available to UK State funded Primary and Secondary Schools to enable them to get their pupils learning outdoors.
The Ernest Cook Trust’s Outdoor Essentials Grant scheme will award 180 grants to support school travel and transport costs to outdoor learning venues, including outdoor learning centres, forest schools, countryside parks, woodlands, national parks, farm parks, farms (including city farms), coastal areas and beaches. Trips to outdoor adventure centres for outdoor activities (such as kayaking and climbing) may be considered.
Applications must be made by a member of staff employed by the school and approved by the Head Teacher. Multi Academy Trusts can also apply, but applications must be made by the individual schools.
