St Matthew's C of E Primary School

Forest School

Forest School is a child-centred inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long-term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.

Ms Beaman is our fully trained Forest School Leader and she leads Forest School learning across the school. Forest School learning facilitates more than knowledge-gathering, it helps learners develop socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically and intellectually. It creates a safe, non-judgemental nurturing environment for learners to try stuff out and take risks.

At St Matthews Forest School helps bring our learning to life especially in science as we learn about plants and nature.
