Forest school is an ethos that promotes self-esteem, creativity, confidence and independence. It enables supported risk-taking, child-centred learning, exploration and play.
More than eight in ten children and young people (85%) agreed that being in nature made them very happy. Outdoor and Nature based activities stimulate senses and imagination allowing all to develop a new understanding for the environment they’re in.
What we offer to schools
As each school is different we will create a bespoke package based on your needs. All sessions are run by our fully qualified forest school practitioner.
Don't worry if you don't have a suitable outdoor space, we can facilitate getting the children outdoors.
Book a taster day or enrichment activity to get started. Or to fully integrate the forest school ethos into your school life we can provide yearly, termly or half-termly programmes.
Forest School provisions offer a unique approach to learning that takes place in natural environments. Children are encouraged to explore, discover and learn in a hands-on way, using the natural world as their classroom. With a focus on practical skills, children are given the opportunity to engage with nature, building their confidence, resilience, and independence.
At Forest School, children have the opportunity to experience a range of activities, such as bushcraft, outdoor games, woodland crafts, and wildlife identification. Each activity is designed to encourage children to think creatively, solve problems, and work collaboratively.
Forest School provisions are an excellent addition to any school's curriculum, providing an opportunity for children to learn in a way that is both enjoyable and engaging. With the increasing importance of outdoor learning, Forest School provisions can help children develop a greater appreciation for nature and the environment around them.
