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 our outdoor environment.

Forest School is a specialised learning approach that sits within and complements the wider context of outdoor education.

At Forest School all children are viewed as:

  • equal, unique and valuable
  • competent to explore & discover
  • entitled to experience appropriate risk and challenge
  • entitled to choose, and to initiate and drive their own learning and development
  • entitled to experience regular success
  • entitled to develop positive relationships with themselves and other people
  • entitled to develop a strong, positive relationship with their natural world

 

‘Forest School teaches me new life skills that I cannot learn in my classroom. It has helped me to become a team player and it is also lots of fun!
