Benefits of Forest School

Saint Edmund’s is committed to giving children the opportunity to learn in the outdoor environment and receive the benefits and experiences the natural world has to offer.

Forest School aims to promote the holistic development and is beneficial in promoting children’s self esteem, wellbeing, creativity, collaborative learning, team building and problem solving.  These qualities feedback positively into the classroom and other settings. Children are encouraged to be curious, explore and take managed risks.

Our Forest School Area

We are developing our Forest School area up near Tamara’s Trees; we have recently build a camp fire area and are busy constructing our base camp.  We have many more exciting plans including: a mud pit digging area, bug hotels, loose parts area.



Forest School sessions are led by our Forest School leaders Mrs Bridges and Mrs Towers.
