Forest Schools

Forest School is a child-centred and holistic approach to learning. It supports play opportunities, exploration and risk-taking activities in a safe and controlled environment. Sessions are hands on and allow the learner to develop their independence, confidence and self-esteem in the natural environment.

At the Orchard School Forest School is new and children have recently started sessions. They will be spending the first term exploring and becoming familiar with their surroundings.

Forest School sessions are carried out by a trained Forest School Leader.
