NAEE’s new secondary school curriculum report illustrates how Key Stages 3 and 4 provide numerous opportunities for schools, teachers and children to explore a wide range of the world’s most pressing issues. This is the latest in a number of reports that NAEE will be publishing from time to time and is freely available to download here.
“As both a secondary school teacher and the Education department manager at Birmingham Botanical Gardens, this guide has been invaluable in allowing me to incorporate relevant and accurate environmental information into my everyday teaching and longer-term planning. This ensures that an essential `environmental education`, which children can so often miss out on, can be placed at the forefront of all subjects, not just science and geography. It is an indispensable handbook that I refer to again and again.”

“A fantastic handbook detailing the many opportunities for environmental education that exist within the UK curriculum. With children and young people spending less of their free time outdoors (due to issues such as technology and safety worries), environmental education in schools is more important than ever! The handbook highlights the opportunities for environmental education that can be found in the Early Years Foundation Stage Profile and the Primary National Curriculum in England.”
