Forest School

SAM_4713SAM_4761We believe in a curriculum that goes beyond the four walls of the classroom and Forest School exemplifies this approach. 

We have our own dedicated Forest School site and a member of staff is a trained and enthusiastic Forest School leader.

Children in Reception and Year 1 make weekly visits to our Forest School located on the side of Bredon Hill.

As much as the curriculum in other year groups allows, we also encourage Forest School visits for all our classes.
