Forest School

Forest School

We are pleased to offer Forest School provision for all children from Nursery to Year 6.

Forest School allows learners the time and space to develop skills, interests and understanding through practical, hands on experiences about nature. It also allows practitioners to step back and observe the children in order to then encourage and inspire individuals to achieve through careful scaffolding and facilitating. The Forest School sessions have a strong emphasis on positive mental wellbeing, teamwork, communication, resilience and character building.

The children learn many outdoor skills through planned sessions, such as tool work, structure building, fire lighting, cooking and investigating nature in its natural habitat.

The school has two areas dedicated to this provision, the Forest School at the back of the main school playground and on the school field.
