Forest School

 

Steephill Forest School

Steephill Forest School is part of the Early Years Curriculum and embodies the principles of the Forest School Association:

Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.

Forest School is a specialised learning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor and woodland education.

We utilise part of the back of the School which is wooded and secure. Two of our teachers have been especially trained for Forest School so the highest standards of learning and safety are achieved.

At Forest School all participants are viewed as:

equal, unique and valuable

competent to explore & discover

entitled to experience appropriate risk and challenge

entitled to choose, and to initiate and drive their own learning and development

entitled to experience regular success

entitled to develop positive relationships with themselves and other people

entitled to develop a strong, positive relationship with their natural world
