Forest Schools

In September 2017 we introduced Forest Schools to our school.  We have three members of staff who have been trained to lead this: Mrs Bridge, Mrs Shaw and Mrs Stone.  We have incorporated this into our PE curriculum 'outdoor and adventurous play' so that every child in the school will experience six weeks of forest school during the academic year.  

 

 

 

When will my child take part in Forest Schools?
