Wild Tribe

Wild Tribe is underpinned through six principles as noted by the nationally recognised organisation of The Forest School Association. They are

Principle 1: Wild Tribe is a long-term process of frequent and regular sessions in a woodland or natural environment, rather than a one-off visit. Planning, adaptation, observations and reviewing are integral elements of Wild Tribe.

Principle 2: Wild Tribe takes place in a woodland or natural wooded environment to support the development of a relationship between the learner and the natural world.

Principle 3: Wild Tribe aims to promote the holistic development of all those involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners.

Principle 4: Wild Tribe offers learners the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.

Principle 5: Wild Tribe is run by qualified Wild Tribe practitioners who continuously maintain and develop their professional practice.

Principle 6: Wild Tribe uses a range of learner-centred processes to create a community for development and learning.
