A Forest School Association five minute introduction to 'What is Forest School?'
A short but comprehensive look into the six principles what they do and why we need them.
Forest School is a child-centred approach to learning in the outdoor environment within the school grounds, lead by Mr. Evans-Lee, who is a Level 3 Forest School practitioner.
It is a program that supports play, exploration, leadership, turn-taking and supported risk-taking - helping the children to develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on experiences in a natural setting. Children in Reception to Year 6 take part in regular weekly guided sessions throughout the year to benefit from a long-term process.
The Forest School ethos approach to risk means that children are constantly expanding their abilities by solving issues, building self-belief and resilience.
