Forest School Principles

Forest School Principles

•  Forest School is a long-term process of frequent and regular sessions in a woodland or natural environment, rather than a one-off visit. Planning, adaptation, observations, and reviewing are integral elements of Forest School.

•  Forest School takes place in a woodland or natural wooded environment to support the development of a relationship between the learner and the natural world.

•  Forest School aims to promote the holistic development of all those involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners.

•  Forest School offers learners the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.

•  Forest School is run by qualified Forest School practitioners who continuously maintain and develop their professional practice.
•  Forest School uses a range of learner-centred processes to create a community for development and learning.
