Forest Schools

The philosophy of Forest Schools is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through an ongoing programme of positive experiences and participation in engaging and motivating achievable tasks and activities in a woodland environment. Forest Schools have demonstrated success with children, young people and adults. The developmental programmes run throughout the year with groups going to the woodland in almost all weathers. Children and young people work with tools, play, learn boundaries of behaviour; both physical and social, grow in confidence, self-esteem and motivation.

The long-term, child-centered nature of Forest School programmes provide opportunities to promote and develop emotional literacy, resilience, self-awareness and regulation and provide time and space to practice different strategies, develop social skills and to be reflective.
