COMMUNITY

King Athelestan School

As part of our commitment to our local community, our neighbouring school, King Athelstan, visits our site weekly to take part in our Forest School program and experience the benefits of our woodland.

We use a specialised outdoor learning approach that allows all our children regular opportunities to achieve, to develop confidence, to boost self-esteem, and enjoy a hands-on learning experience in a woodland and natural environment with trees. 

 

We have created a safe nurturing space which allows individuals to explore their feelings and behaviours at their own pace. We challenge them, through play based activity,  and support  them through their decisions and processes to help them recognise how different choices and use of their emotional resilience “toolkit”  may lead to different outcomes. 

Forest School is amazing; the children were all totally engaged in what they were doing, and all seemed to be really enjoying the activities…This seems to be a fantastic opportunity for those children involved
