Forest School

Forest School supports the development of a relationship between the learner and the natural world. Our setting is largely tarmac and we have few natural areas so we have taken the ethos of forest school and adapted it to our setting to offer forest school activities. 


Our Forest School activities aim to promote the holistic development of our children, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners. Forest school activities offer learners the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.


Furthermore our forest school activities are designed to build on our children’s innate motivation, positive attitudes and/or interests.

  • 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.
  • Stepping away from indoor learning, it allows children the time and space to initiate their own learning.
  • At Tudor, we want children to develop through regular experiences in the woodland, developing the child as a whole, in an enabling natural environment. Through that, Children develop in areas such as resilience, confidence, self-esteem, imagination and independence.
  • Children also get the opportunity to use tools, explore, investigate, assess risks and explore the habitats around them. Children also get the opportunity to sit around the fire having snacks and drinks.  
  • There are no limits to their learning, no ability groups, no discrimination, no tests and most of all no pressure.
  • Forest school allows the opportunity for children to access an unlimited learning potential.
