What is Forest School?

Forest School is a way of learning which offers all learners opportunities to develop confidence and self esteem through hands-on experiences with nature. Forest Schooling compliments both curricular learning within schools and the wider context of outdoor education.

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

These principles were set by the Forest School Community. For more information please visit the Forest School Association.
