Forest Schools

Forest school is a unique and amazing opportunity for children to learn outdoors. It is run by trained school staff who are Forest School leaders. They provide our children with a wide range of learning opportunities, giving them hands on experience of natural resources, real tools and cooking on a fire.

Forest school treats all children as unique, equal and entitled to:

explore & discover

experience appropriate risk and challenge

choose, and to initiate and drive their own learning

experience regular success

develop positive relationships with themselves and other people

develop a strong, positive relationship with their natural world

Our Forest School sessions take place in our garden area which is a partially wooded area so that children can develop their understanding of the natural world. All children in school are entitled to a six week block of weekly sessions which promote and develop their resilience, confidence, independence and creativity.

“I love it when you get to make things using wood and tools”
