Dauntsey Academy Primary School

Forest School & Outdoor Learning

At Dauntsey Academy Primary School we have a strong ethos for outdoor learning and believe that it can be used in all areas of the curriculum to strengthen and deepen pupils' understanding and knowledge, creating real life experiences. Through outdoor learning, pupils develop resilient and inquisitive minds, driving their own learning forward. They are given the confidence to be leaders and support one another in risky play that promotes decision-making. Pupils will explore and learn outside throughout the year, experiencing the seasons and natural changes around them. This enables them to gain understanding and respect for the natural world and all that lives within it. By weaving outdoor learning through the curriculum our pupils will lead the way towards a greener future.
