Description This study was designed to analyse the way in which outdoor education (OE) is implemented at selected elementary schools providing the primary and lower secondary education. To understand the status of OE in the Czechia, a formal framework for implementing OE in national and school curriculum is described in the introduction. The first phase of our research consists of a content analysis of the School Education Programmes (SEPs). All of the analysed SEPs included OE in some form but with differences among the schools in terms of quantity and quality of learning. Therefore, the next phase of our research supplemented the data acquired in the first phase, using structured interviews with 18 teachers at nine model schools. The interviews confirmed that the schools have no concept of OE. Therefore, we made an effort to propose the principles of a concept of OE and its implementation in the Czech curriculum.
