All children enjoy regular Forest School sessions. Based on a Scandinavian idea, Forest School involves children working, with their teachers, in a woodland setting. The usual curriculum is followed but in an outdoor, practical context, using learning and teaching strategies which raise awareness, self-confidence and independence, and develop other key skills including: the ability to communicate, collaborate and solve problems as part of a team. In addition to the physical, social and health benefits for the children, the outdoor environment has proven to be a good motivator. This flows back into the classroom and impacts positively upon achievement. The school has its own Forest Area, located within the school grounds.
The school is also a Green Flag Eco School.
