Forest School

Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment.



Our sessions are carried out by Mrs Sara Donovan, who is currently working towards her Level 3 qualification in Forest School Leadership. Here is Mrs Donovan at her Forest School training...





Forest School sessions are currently being run for Reception children only but Mrs Donovan hopes to extend this to other year groups throughout the school year. 



We are very lucky to have such wonderful grounds to explore at Fairview, and all of our Forest School sessions take place in our outdoor classroom.



At Forest School all participants are viewed as:

  • equal, unique and valuable.
  • competent to explore & discover.
  • entitled to experience appropriate risk and challenge.
  • entitled to choose, and to initiate and drive their own learning and development.
  • entitled to experience regular success.
  • entitled to develop positive relationships with themselves and other people.
  • entitled to develop a strong, positive relationship with their natural world.
