Forest School is a programme of activities that provide learning opportunities in an outdoor environment.
Children will enjoy the freedom to explore and experience the natural world in all seasons and in all weathers.
Forest School is designed to develop self-esteem, confidence and social skills through small achievable tasks. 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.
