Schools Outreach Programme

Primary Schools Outreach sessions

Become a wild champion-in your community by learning about the different wildlife that makes up your green spaces and what you can do for nature on your doorstep. This is a two-day session with wildlife actions to deliver in between. Pupils will learn about biodiversity found in urban spaces and design an action plan to support it.

The programme for primary and early years includes two 90 minute RSPB-facilitated sessions spread over one term, with a teacher-led session in between.
