What is Forest School?

Forest School is an approach to learning that takes children outdoors to explore the natural environment, whatever the weather.

Forest School champions children’s ability to think for themselves, connect well with others, in short it prepares them well for life.

The Benefits of Forest School?

Put simply, Forest School makes children happy. It gives them the freedom to play and follow their own interests.

Children gain valuable problem solving skills, which helps them to become resilient learners.

The main benefit for teachers is that regular Forest School gets children ‘ready to learn’ academically. The hands-on learning approach allows children to develop skills that may be difficult to teach in the classroom.

Forest school offers something for everyone. It’s inclusive by nature.

Who runs Forest School?

We come as a team of two to ensure the safety of the children whilst teaching fire and tools. This means you wouldn’t need to send a member of staff.

We would only need someone extra for children with additional needs. This will save school money and time.
