Ethos

Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers children opportunities to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem, through hands on learning experiences in a local woodland environment. 

 The ethos of Forest School is based on a fundamental respect for children and for their capacity to instigate, test and maintain curiosity in the world around them. It believes in children's right to play; the right to access the outdoors (and in particular a woodland environment); the right to access risk and the vibrant reality of the natural world; and the right to experience a healthy range of emotions, through all the challenges of social interaction, to build a resilience that will enable continued and creative engagement with their peers and their potential” Forest School Training (FSTC)
