‘Forest School’ is a unique educational experience and process that offers children the opportunity to succeed and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland environment. Children engage in motivating and achievable tasks and activities throughout the year and in almost all weathers. Children will work with a variety tools, play, learn boundaries of behaviour; both physical and social, grow in confidence, self-esteem and motivation whilst developing an understanding of the natural world.
We are proud to specifically offer ‘Forest School’ to our EYFS and SEND children. However, outside learning is currently provided for all children at Portfields Primary School at our own ‘Forest School’ site.
