Creating outdoor environments that help to develop resilience

Written by: Fawns | Published:

Environments that enable pupils of all ages to play outside can help develop emotional resilience on top of the obvious health benefits in the battle against rising obesity levels.

Creating a varied outdoor environment and allowing pupils the opportunity to experience appropriate risk and challenge helps to develop skills beyond the academic – including negotiation, resilience and independence.
