BEDFORD BOROUGH COUNCIL SCORES A HATRICK OF SUCCESS FOR BLUE PERIS MOUNTAIN CENTRE

For the third year running, Bedford Borough Council has had their Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) Quality Badge renewed at Blue Peris Mountain Centre.

 

The LOtC Quality Badge was launched in 2009 as part of a national initiative to ensure young people are given more opportunities to have outdoor experiences as part of their curriculum.

 

Cllr Doug McMurdo, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture at Bedford Borough Council, said: “To secure this achievement for the third year running is a stunning achievement.  The centre sets the benchmark for the delivery of educational sports and leisure activities in a safe and secure environment.”

 

Blue Peris Centre Manager, Mark Richards, said: “Being awarded the LOtC Quality Badge is a real coup for all the staff here as it shows that we offer young people the type of high quality learning experiences they really benefit from. We're thrilled to get official recognition for our efforts and we look forward to welcoming even more children and young people from the local area to our outdoor education centre.”

 

The LOtC Quality Badge offers teachers a guarantee that not only is a venue providing the sort of educational value that they can build on in class long after the visit, but they also have the appropriate risk management structures in place.
