The children, parents and staff at Northwick Park Primary Academy have worked incredibly hard to develop their own unique Forest School site which is held within the school grounds. All Forest School staff are level 2/3 trained and have an up to date first aid certificate.
“Forest School offers a unique opportunity for children to experience the outdoors in a way that facilitates their holistic development and fosters their growth as confident and competent learners. It also encourages healthy habits and lifestyles.” (Knight 2009).
A session provides the children with inspirational and challenging outdoor learning opportunities. It focuses on a learner centred approach, where children can learn through self-directed play and exploration. Children will be given the opportunity to develop their curiosity, confidence, self-esteem, creativity, empathy, communication skills, knowledge of the natural environment and ability to assess risk.
