Our Forest School is nature-based community where our trained practitioner nurtures learner-led exploration and discovery, nurturing meaningful experiences for positive lifelong impacts. Wellbeing is the foundation of our practice and through recognising the social, emotional and physical needs of our pupils we provide the guidance and facilitation for our time in nature. Through creating learner inspired experiences based on exploration and discovery, we recognise opportunities to mentor holistic growth over the course of long-term programmes.
We nurture a culture based on collaboration and of embracing challenge so that we can allow, over time, for the blossoming of pupils’ character, resilience and empathy, and for a greater sense of connection, with nature and for our shared future.
Children have the opportunity to explore the woodland area and develop individual interests. We also provide opportunities for making sparks with fire steels, cooking on the fire, bug hunts, nature trails, using tools and much more!
