Our Learning Environment

Lodge Lane Infant School has many rich and varied spaces for teaching and learning.  We provide lots of opportunities to learn outside of the classroom and we view our wider school grounds as an ‘outdoor classroom’.

Our school has nine indoor classrooms which are clustered together in year groups to help staff and children learn together.  We also have a number of smaller spaces within the school where small group and one to one support and teaching can take place.

Outside we have developed the following areas:

  • A well-structured and equipped reception outdoor area to support free flow learning
  • An outdoor area for year one children to support their transition from the Early Years Foundation Stage to Key Stage One
  • A rich and secluded Forest School area where sessions take place for children in years one and two
  • A vegetable garden where we grow food.  Our school chickens also reside next to our garden
  • The ‘Mystical Meadow’ which is a natural outdoor play area
  • Various wider outdoor provision including our main playground and school field, our sensory garden, a trim trail and our climbing frame

Together, alongside learning opportunities within the wider community, there is a wealth of exciting spaces for children to learn in!
