Forest Schools

The aim of a Forest school is to facilitate the engagement of individuals with the outdoors and promote personal development.

Through an initial phase of group work and introductory activities then by building routine and trust, participants become increasingly competent and confident in the setting and acquire skills that are transferable to the classroom and life in general.

Throughout a Forest school programme, participants will:

  • Acquire skill with tools and knowledge of woodland

crafts

  • Develop a sense of environmental responsibility

  • Use tools and fire safely

  • Set small achievable goals to help promote self

esteem

  • Take risk both physical and emotional in a managed environment

  • Gain in confidence, independence and communication skills

  • Improve reflective practice
