“The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky”
This quote from famous nursery educator Margaret McMillan is perfect to illustrate how we feel about our children being outdoors here at TVPS. She maintained that children need space and the outdoors as much as food and water, and we couldn’t agree more!
We are very lucky to enjoy access to St Peter’s School playground, field and trim trail when they are not in use, which provides a brilliant setting for children to play and run in safety.
It is important to note that unless the weather conditions are severe, we go out regardless. If it’s rainy and cold, we wrap up in woolies, wellies and waterproofs and off we go – the children always love it!
