We offer our children the opportunity to play, laugh and learn at one with nature whatever the weather! Our Forest School sessions are held on a Friday Morning each week in Fardell's Lane Nature Reserve.

Favourite activities include: Mud play, den building, tool use, nature games, tree climbing, low ropes, rope swings, natural crafts and so much more!

Our Forest School sessions are guided by the 6 Forest School Principles:

  1. Forest School is a long-term process of regular sessions.

  2. Forest School takes place in a woodland or natural environment to support the development of a lifelong relationship between the learner and the natural world.

  3. Forest School uses a range of learner-centred processes to create a community for being, development and learning.

  4. Forest School aims to promote the holistic development of all involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners.

  5. Forest School offers learners the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.

  6. Forest School is run by qualified Forest School practitioners, who continuously maintain and develop their professional practice.
