Nuneaton Nature School

Red Kite Academy Trust is applying to the Department for Education to open its first Nature School, in Nuneaton.

It is our vision that the school would be deeply rooted in, and a central part of, the local community. Children will value, and be proud of, their local area.

There is a need for new, good school places in Nuneaton, and local communities are enthusiastic about our plans for a Nature School. A Nature School would offer parents greater choice in the type of school their child attends.

Conversations are currently underway with local authorities, local schools and the local community in Nuneaton about the proposed new school. If our application is successful, the Nuneaton Nature School could open in September 2022 or 2023.

Do you have children of primary school age?
Do you support the opening of a local Nature School?
Would you choose a Nature School for your child/children?
When the children visit us, they don’t just learn about bugs and birds, we offer maths sessions using naturally found objects to work it all out, we link to physics through play such as den building and create art using natural materials and nature as inspiration.

I find it amazing how engrossed children can get when learning outdoors. I think outdoor education is a vital part in the development of children of primary school age.
