Forest School enriches our children's learning and encourages them to be adventurous, imaginative and observant. Renzo and Kate, qualified Forest School leaders from the Sussex Wildlife Trust work closely with the class teachers to link Forest School with all areas of our curriculum. 

The children develop in confidence as they achieve new skills; both social skills, such as collaboration and communication and personal qualities such as initiative and determination. These skills develop over the block of sessions through real life experience in our beautiful woodland. The children learn to care for themselves and develop trust in each other while playing. They are taught to use tools safely and respect the natural world.

We carry on in almost all weathers which gives us opportunities to build shelters, light fires and get muddy. Whilst there are real challenges and adventures the children’s safety and well-being is at the heart of Forest School.

Forest School nurtures a culture based on collaboration and of embracing challenge so that children over time develop their character, resilience and empathy as wekk as a greater sense of connection with nature.
