One family in Christ

Forest School

Each week the children are given the oppurtunity to explore our outdoor spaces in all weathers. They will be able to engage with lessons involving shelter building, outdoor cooking, gardening and outdoor crafts.

These are the principles which underpin every Forest School Session.:

  • It is a long-term process of frequent and regular sessions. Planning, adaptation, observations and reviewing of the sessions are integral elements.
  • It takes place in a woodland or natural wooded environment to support the development of a relationship between the learner and the natural world.
  • It aims to promote the holistic development of all those involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners
  • It offers learners the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.
  • It is run by qualified Forest School practitioner who continuously maintains and develops their professional practice.
  • It uses a range of learner-centred processes to create a community for development and learning
