Wild Tribe

Wild Tribe has been based on the principles of Wild Tribe which was developed from the Scandinavian education system and is about children and young people building self-esteem and independence through exploring and experiencing the natural world. Wild Tribe is a long term programme delivered by trained practitioners within a natural environment (not necessarily a forest!)

Wild Tribe has been developed by teachers and practitioners working alongside each other to ensure that units of exploration have been developed, which meet the needs of all learners and meets the requirements of the National Curriculum.

Each Wild Tribe unit of exploration is tailored to meet the needs of individuals within that group and is continuously developed as the young people grow in confidence, skills and understanding as a result of their exploration.

The ethos of Wild Tribe allows learners the time and space to develop skills, interests and understanding through practical hands-on experiences. It also allows practitioners to step back and observe the young people in order to then encourage and inspire individuals to achieve through careful scaffolding and facilitating.  Wild Tribe has been developed based on the principles of Forest School but links much more with the curriculum.
