“Forest School is a child–centred, inspirational learning process that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self–esteem through learner inspired, hands on experiences in a natural setting.”
Forest School sessions are carried out once a week in small groups by Mrs Carr, our Forest School Level 3 Practitioner.
Currently Reception children have Forest School once a week and Mrs Carr also carries out an afterschool club for the older children.
