Forest School Learning

The thought of your child being outdoors in cold or wet weather for up to two                                                           hours, can be a daunting prospect for many parents, especially if the philosophy   behind Forest School is not full understood.

What is Forest School?

Where are the benefits of Forest school for my child?

What will my child need to take part in Forest School sessions?

Should I be worried about my child being involved in 'risk taking'?

An increasing number of schools in both England and Wales are now taking part in Forest School learning whereby children spend a proportion of their learning time each week in the outdoor woodland environment. There is much research around the benefits of the outdoor environment for children's health and well-being as well as their overall development.  Children can be involved with Forest School from as early as six months old, particularly if you attend groups at your local Children's Centre. Nursery and Primary schools often choose to incorporate Forest School into their curriculum with trained Forest School leaders, leading sessions in local woodland or on the school site.
