Join Our OASES Network

Are you a qualified teacher or teaching assistant?  Do you work in Early Years? Do you want to know more about outdoor learning?  Are you interested in understanding the research behind the pedagogy? Would you appreciate the opportunity to meet other like minded teachers? Do you fancy experiencing some outdoor learning yourself? 

If the answer is 'Yes' to any of the above and you are currently employed by a school, please join the OASES, Schools' Outdoor Learning Network.

Every term we lead an OASES, Schools' Outdoor Learning Network meeting where school staff can gather together to do all of the above.  After a quick OASES update the host school will share their outdoor learning practice.  This will be followed by a practical session, taking a different curriculum subject outdoors each time.  At the end there will be time to discuss your own experiences and network to deepen your outdoor learning practice. 

As a charity we measure our success on our impact, not our profit margin, hence this service is absolutely FREE.  Just complete the form below OR complete the membership form and return it to to become a network member.

The next network meeting is to be arranged.  Please keep checking our website and your emails for new opportunities and news updates.



It was my first Network Meeting so I wasn't sure what to expect.  I gained lots of lovely ideas and it was a good chance to network and share ideas.  Westlea Primary School

Excellent use of time finding out ideas to use in school to engage both teachers and pupils.  The meeting was really inspiring plus it's a great networking opportunity as well as useful ideas to take back to school.  Easington Colliery Primary School  

Really useful, enjoyed ideas and suggestions.  Nice to get the perspective, views and ideas from the varying key stages.  The structure of the meeting had a good balance.  Enjoyed being outside.  Witton-Le-Wear Primary School

Thoroughly enjoyed the meeting.  Good ideas, interactive, time well spent with like-minded people.  There was a good mix of indoor/outdoor and liked that we could take part in lessons and ideas that would share with children.  Langley Park Primary School
