More and more schools are also providing “outside learning areas” within the grounds, which again impacts on safety and security. For example, many teachers will extol the virtues of a pond feature to bring nature-based learning to life. Clearly this opportunity must be balanced with the risks associated with water so any ponds must be effectively fenced off to restrict pupil access. Any gates surrounding water must be fitted with suitable latches that are resistant to any attempts by young children to gain access. Similarly, any outdoor learning experience must also be supported by a responsible approach to the provision of protection from the sun. An attractive timber structure with open sides and a Perspex roof can enable pupils to enjoy extended periods in the great outdoors without the risk of burning.
