Mr Kingham and Mrs Wood lead on ‘Forest Schools’ each Monday and Friday afternoon. We are building a wonderful Forest School site on our allotment and school field. We also access Wollaton Park and Balloon Woods sites.
The Forest school ethos is based on a fundamental respect for children and young people and for their capacity to instigate, test and maintain curiosity in the world around them. It aims to build a resilience that will enable continued and creative engagement with their peers and their potential.
Pupils are chosen for targeted skills acquisition, for example, the need for communication skills improvement, interpersonal skills improvement, etc
