Forest School

Forest School uses the woods as a means to build independence, teamwork, problem solving skills and self-esteem. The Forest School curriculum compliments the topics in the classroom and the woodland environment is used to support all areas of learning including mathematics and literacy. Within sessions the woodland environment is used to support the development of a relationship between the learner and the natural world. Forest School uses a range of learner-centred processes to create a community for being, development and learning. Each session aims to promote the holistic development of all those involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners. Children are offered the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves. Forest School is run by a qualified Forest School practitioner.
