Independent thinkers and learners: a critical evaluation of the ‘Growing Together Schools Programme’
Sharpe, D. 2014. Independent thinkers and learners: a critical evaluation of the ‘Growing Together Schools Programme’. Pastoral Care in Education. 32 (3), pp. 197-207.
This article reports on primary data following an evaluative research project examining an innovative outdoor learning programme in the South East of England with pupils from year six in a primary school. The programme focused on enhancing the skills, experiences and personal attributes of children and young people to cope better with the challenges of learning in the classroom. The evaluation focused on how the intervention was successful in building confidence in children and preparing them for academic success. This study is unique, in that it aims to privilege children’s voices and explores their subjective accounts of the programme to actually begin to understand some of the nuances and issues involved in participating from a child’s perspective in an outdoor learning programme.
