Our Muddy Promise…
We are committed in helping the education industry to reduce waste and to teach the next generations about being more environmentally friendly through outdoor learning. With eco-schools being taken out of the curriculum, schools have little to be accountable for in regard to waste. It is down to each of them to consciously put this at the forefront and we know as teachers they have enough to do. The Muddy Puddle Teacher approach was created with that in mind.
Just by simply doing the muddy puddle teacher approach, that still covers attainment and supports learning they are making and environmental impact, while reducing waste, saving energy and using less paper and plastics!
At The Muddy Puddle Teacher there some of the things we are working on to better help achieve this:
- Inform schools of organisations like Barnardo’s and NPAC who can help reuse
- To work more with organisations that help schools reduce plastic
- To better promote those that encourage schools to reuse, recycle
- Support families in schools by providing packs and resources
- Support teachers and how they can apply this in their personal life

We have outdoor learning schools throughout the UK now using our approach to better support the learning inside by using the outside space! We are now carefully gathering up data to soon provide research on how this approach can impact on children of varying abilities and personalities. The Muddy Puddle Teacher approach together with outdoor learning really is providing something special not just for the child but teacher too. We will be compiling the teacher questionnaire shortly and revealing all results in our news section. Watch this space.
