Forest School / Outdoor Learning
Dines Green Community Academy
At Dines Green, we strive to provide the best range of opportunities for our pupils. In this very intense world, we feel that the chance to learn without the restraints, pressures and rules of the classroom should be offered to as many children as possible.
We at Forest School aim to promote wellbeing, self-reflection and purposeful contentment in our natural surroundings, encouraging children to take measured risks, to be more aware of nature and to look after themselves and others.
‘Forest School builds on a child’s innate motivation and positive attitude to learning, offering them the opportunities to take risks, make choices and initiate learning for themselves.’
