Participation and Learning

Moor Pool offers what must be an almost unique opportunity for participation and learning. There can be few if any places in the country in an urban environment close to the centre of a major city, which can offer such a diverse range of social and sporting facilities along with ecological and environmental learning opportunities.

For key stages 1, 2 and 3, Moor Pool is an opportunity for fun, activity and discovery, and applied projects that involve visiting Moor Pool, meaning it will be a memorable experience. The varied open spaces Moor Pool provides are an easily accessible and rich resource for areas of learning, including; historical, geographical and social understanding, and understanding physical development, health and wellbeing.
