Our primary schools programmes can be delivered as full day or half day sessions. We have a range of activities you can choose from which all support cross-curricular learning and Every Child Matters Outcomes. We will be happy to adapt sessions to meet your needs or to work with you to develop new activities.
Most of our activities can be delivered in your school grounds or on a local site. Alternatively, we can suggest an appropriate site for you to visit for our activities. We will discuss locations with you when you book.
