Forest School

What is Forest Schools?

The Forest School ethos is an approach to learning to learning which maximises the emotional, social and developmental benefits of learning outside.

Forest School Ethos:
Children need more risk
need to be more active
need more independence in own learning
need more play
thinking outside the norm
real life experiences

We are fortunate to have our own woodland area which is dedicated in part to Forest School activities. We have a member of staff who is a Forest School Leader, and one in training. Early Years pupils enjoy ” Wellie Wednesday” every week, and Forest Schools is enjoyed by groups of pupils in KS1 and KS2. Since┬áSeptember 2016, all classes enjoy Forest Schools as part of their curriculum offer.
