BENEFITS FOR SCHOOLS

The Benefits Explained

21 Benefits for Schools

We provide schools with the infrastructure to offer effective active learning on a regular basis – not just a few times in the summer! Why, historically, has active, outdoor learning not been delivered on a daily basis? Quite simply, because it takes so much time to put together and set up. Cross-Curricular Orienteering helps schools solve this problem for good by providing all the resources, strategies, set up and training to ensure this form of learning is actually manageable, effective and impactful. Once set up, it’s there to use forever. Cross-Curricular Orienteering provides schools with everything to improve standards not only in PE but across school life: PE curriculum | Wider curriculum | 30 active minutes | Sport & competitions
