Forest School

In Reception we plan and develop our outdoor provision based around the Forest School Approach. We use this approach as it focuses on the holistic development of children, building skills which include self-awareness, self-motivation, self-confidence, social skills and empathy. 


We aim to foster a relationship with nature through regular personal experiences in order to develop long-term, environmentally sustainable attitudes and practices in staff, learners and the wider community as well as using natural resources for inspiration, to enable ideas and to encourage intrinsic motivation.
