Parks & Countryside Education Provision 2021

Closed 24 Jul 2021

Opened 28 Jun 2021


We are inviting you to share with us how you use our sites across Sheffield’s Parks, Woodland and Countryside in your teaching and learning.  We would also like to gather your thoughts about how you might wish to use them in the future.



As a service we are seeking ways we can improve our delivery for schools, how we can help design activities and projects that sit within the National Curriculum, and how we can offer inspiring outdoor, hands-on, learning for school pupils. This survey should take around 10 minutes to complete.

The responses from this survey will be compiled and compared to gain a better understanding of what Sheffield City Council Parks and Countryside Sites can offer in terms of education provision across a range of key stages. This will be examined in comparison to an analysis of which of the unique selling points of each site align with which areas of the curriculum it seems most useful for sites to cover for education purposes. This will inform the content of resources which will be offered and delivered by each of the sites, in conjunction with onsite Trusts, ‘Friends Of’ Groups and volunteers, to sure that the education provision on Sheffield City Council sites is the most useful and supportive of education needs in Sheffield that it can be.
