What is forest school?
Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners access to a natural environment during which they have regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on, child initiated experiences.
At Forest School, all participants 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
Why are we doing it?
All the evidence and research suggests giving children the opportunity to access outdoor learning promotes their emotional literacy, wellbeing, attainment, behaviour, social skills and enjoyment.
With those results we’d be stupid not to!
