What is Forest School?

Forest School is designed around children taking place in a range of activities in an outdoor environment.

Children will enjoy the regular freedom to explore and experience the natural world in all seasons and in all weathers. Berry Wood Picture The outdoor environment inspires children to grow in self-esteem, confidence, independence and social skills through small achievable tasks.

They will learn how to risk assess and set boundaries to which they must work within.

As the children grow in confidence they will undertake new experiences and take appropriate risks in a nurturing environment whilst remaining safe and in control.

They will learn about the natural world around them and gain an appreciation for nature which will encourage them to be responsible for the environment in later life.
