Forest School

What is Forest School?

Forest School uses the outdoor environment to help all children learn. Children are encouraged to develop independence skills, improve decision making and raise their self-esteem through small achievable tasks.

Sessions of Forest School are child led to suit individual learning styles. Children are encouraged to make choices and follow their own learning style. The Forest School leader's role is to help, observe and assess the children. The children are supervised by the Forest School Leader - Mr Herbert and one of the Teaching Assistants from the year group.

Spring Term 2018

We have had wind, rain, sleet and snow but Forest School keeps going whatever the weather.


Autumn Term 2017

It is a new term and the first groups of children have been exploring Forest School. Have a look at the photos below to see what they have been doing.

New Forest School Path

In June 2017 we were able to have a new wheelchair accessible path built in Forest School. This was thanks to a grant of £10,000 from the 'Awards for All' part of The National Lottery. This means improved access for all children who use this area whatever the weather.


Below you can see some photos of the new path which the children are now enjoying using.
