Outdoor education develops understanding of the world around us whilst putting learning into real life contexts. It involves being outside and is inclusive to all. We use the environment as a vehicle for transforming the experience into knowledge skills attitudes and behaviour which can then be taken into the classroom or into life. These experiences should be memorable and fun. In school we teach outdoor learning in a number of ways. These include residentials, trips, team building and problem solving in PE and forest school.

We aim to achieve ten key outcomes through outdoor education.  Outdoor learning provides opportunities for children to:

  • Enjoy participating and reflecting in outdoor activities and adopt a positive attitude to challenge and adventure (Enjoyment)
  • Are enhancing their overall well-being by gaining personal confidence and developing character and resilience through taking on challenges and achieving success (confidence and character)
  • Are developing their self-awareness and social skills, and their appreciation of the contributions and achievements of themselves and of others (social and emotional)
  • Are becoming alive to the natural local and global environment and understand the importance of conservation and sustainable development (environmental awareness)
  • Are acquiring and developing a range of skills in outdoor activities, fieldwork, exploration, journeys and expeditions (activity skills)
  • Are demonstrating increased initiative and innovation, enthusiasm, curiosity, self-reliance, responsibility, perseverance, tenacity and commitment (personal qualities)
  • Are developing and extending their key skills of communication, problem-solving, creativity, critical thinking, leadership and co-operation (skills for life)
  • Are learning to appreciate the benefits of physical activity and the lifelong value of participation in healthy leisure activities and reflection (health and well-being)
  • Are displaying an increased motivation and appetite for self-directed learning that is contributing to raised levels of attainment in other aspects of their development, as well s becoming concerned, responsible and fulfilled citizens (increased motivation and appetite for learning)
  • Are broadening their horizons and becoming open to a wider range of employment opportunities and life chances (broadening horizons)
