Forest School

What is Forest School?

Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.
Forest School is a specialised learning approach that sits within and complements the wider context of outdoor and woodland education.

 Foundation Stage pupils embrace the Forest School ethos of outdoor learning. We use our Forest School rules as the basis of learning to respect and love our environment and explore within boundaries, whilst understanding the importance of keeping safe. Children develop key skills such as independence, team building, self-confidence, self-esteem and problem solving which set them up for life.
