Physical Space includes the classroom physical set up and decor. It also includes shared spaces, indoors and outdoors.

The school physical environment is shaped by people and as such reflects the norms, values and ideals of the school community either openly or covertly. For example, a school reception that displays community photos gives out a very different message to one that displays trophies. In contrast, the power of nature to support student wellbeing and engagement in learning has been increasingly recognised.
