Our Forest School leader is a professionally trained and highly qualified Specialist with a wealth of experience working with Children and Young People (CYP). We will tailor our support to the individual needs of the CYP and work with all settings to ensure the pupils are fully included as learners.
Each class will access at least a six week programme over the academic year in our beautiful woodland that we are very lucky to have and develop on school grounds.
Forest School Mission Statement
We aim for equality of opportunity to inspire and provide personal, social and emotional and educational, support as required to enable all pupils to achieve their full potential.
Forest Schools is a unique outdoor learning experience that improves children's self-esteem, confidence and abilities.
The Forest Schools movement takes a learner-centred approach to outdoor education and play in a woodland environment. Programmes allow individuals to develop a relationship with the natural world and sessions foster resilience, creativity and confidence.
Activities will include den building, tree climbing, environmental management and eventually fire lighting inc cooking and tool use.
In order to work outside your children will need to be well prepared for all weathers to keep them safe and comfortable during the session.
Cold/Wet weather list: Spare socks, gloves, hat, waterproofs if you have any, wellington boots/old trainers and old clothes.
Warm weather list: Suncream, sunhat, wellington boots/old trainers, old clothes that keep arms and legs covered.
Children are to come into school in uniform and get changed before the session.
If you have any outgrown suitable clothing or shoes we are creating a spare clothes bank and would be grateful of any donations.
