Forest School Ethos
The Forest Schools Ethos is based upon respecting children and young people to instigate, test out and maintain their curiosity for the natural environment leading to their development of life skills, knowledge and respect for their surroundings.
This takes place in an environment where individuals can take safe risks, experience a healthy range of emotions, build and develop social interactions and skills. Developing self-esteem is very important.
Forest schools are based on the process of holistic learning. Children and young people are encouraged to direct this learning with the support of adults.
