Our decision to include Forest School in our school curriculum is driven by our school vision. One are one family: Love for ourselves, for each other and for the world.
"Let all that you done be done in love." 1 Corinthians 16:14
The ethos of Forest School is for people to instigate, test and maintain a curiosity in the world around them. Particularly for children it allows them to explore, be creative, learn about and preserve the natural world in a safe environment. Every child has the right to play and learn in the outdoors and Forest School can clearly achieve such targets.
Forest school is an all-season activity. Sessions can range from exploring and identifying trees, plants, flowers, bugs and animals, to learning fire safety and constructing camp fires, to survival skills such as den building. Our pupils have the opportunity to develop their interests or just generally appreciate and enjoy spending time outside in nature.
