Learning in the South Downs

Staying Safe

Outdoor Learning, Offsite Visits and Learning Outside the Classroom can all have a positive impact on young people’s learning and development. The National Park offers a wealth of opportunities to meet curriculum needs through outdoor learning experiences.

To stay safe while enjoying the South Downs please make sure that you:-

  • follow National Guidance
  • use your Local Authority Educational Visit approval processes
  • meet health and safety regulations
  • keep staff skills up to date through training courses and updates

Use the links in People of the Park to contact the Local Authority Advisor for your area and access their website.

There are a wide range of people and organisations that support outdoor learning: you can find out more on the Useful Organisations page.
