At The Outdoors School, learners are actively involved in meal times from writing shopping lists, helping to prepare food, sharing a meal with fellow learners and helping to wash up and tidy away. Important social learning happens during mealtime, as children learn new vocabulary and practice skills, such as taking turns and sharing.
We understand that some learners have anxiety or sensory issues around eating and food. Our mealtimes are child-centered and inclusive so that each child feels comfortable to engage and eat intuitively.
We will also ensure that all dietary requirements are catered for.
