Our latest evaluation reports

We are confident that all our programmes offer opportunities for experiential learning that most of the children would not normally have, giving them a better understanding of where and how their food is produced and building their confidence in the countryside. The children’s enjoyment increases their interest in learning, and reluctant learners have the opportunity to engage. Our organisation and delivery is almost always perceived to be excellent, our activities are accessible to all students regardless of their particular needs, and all teachers feel more confident in using the countryside as a learning resource as a result of working with us.

Teachers believe that Food Discovery significantly closes the gap for Pupil Premium students, and children are more willing to try new foods and say they will eat more fruit and vegetables. The majority of children go on to use their cooking skills at home. Teachers report that our Residentials increase children’s independence and self-esteem, enable children to meet positive role models, strengthen their relationships with their peers and help to close the gap for students in receipt of Pupil Premium.
