Forest School

Forest school is an outdoor learning experience, which gives our children, the opportunity to develop skills, confidence and independence using a woodland setting.  The sessions enable the child to develop in personal skills, increase in self-confidence and self- awareness, build resilience, improve communication, understand risk-taking and problem solve.

Our Forest School sessions are developed according to individual needs of the participants, enabling everyone to succeed. Children in both Reception and Year One attend forest school on a fortnightly basis throughout the whole year.  Other year groups have sessions throughout their time at the school.  The children are given the space to explore, experience and grow as both individuals and as a group. Some activities are planned, others emerge or evolve from the children’s imagination and play.  We have a Level 3 Forest School trained member of staff.
