What is Forest School?

Forest School is a child-centred learning process, providing learner inspired, hands-on experiences in the natural environment. It is creative and can increase a child’s confidence as they problem-solve and learn to manage risks. Forest School encourages children to explore the natural environment, developing a love for being outside and taking care of thier world.

  • It is an ethos and philosophy. It promotes self-esteem, creativity, confidence, play and a child-centred learning approach.

  • It is learner-centred, focusing on the curiosity of the child rather than tasks to be finished; it’s holistic learning that helps the child to grow socially, emotionally and physically.

  • It enables children to get outside of the classroom, direct their own learning and exploration and build relationships over time.

  • It is a long-term approach to learning and not a one-off session.

  • It provides opportunities for supported risk-taking and often includes the use of knives, fire, and outdoor shelters.

Forest School from September 2022

We have been so busy in Forest School and have received such positive feedback from staff, parents and most importantly, from the children. 

 "I just love watching the fire burn..."  - Ben (Y5) 

 "Today has been my best lesson ever!" (Excel Y3)

"Flint and steel is real! It's not just from Minecraft!" (Owen Y4)


We have been learning about and experiencing camouflage:
