The pupils in our Federation of The Downs and Northbourne CEP Schools have access to regular Forest School sessions throughout the year. These sessions are led by a fully qualified Level 3 Forest School Practitioner.
Forest School is based on communication and team building skills. We believe that children can build up skills which will help them throughout life and which will help to achieve their full potential in the world of work. Children are able to work in small supervised groups and are encouraged to pass on skills to others that they have learnt. We encourage our children to be independent thinkers, to look outside the box for solutions, to enjoy the beautiful environment and to look after nature.
