Forest School

Here at Bardfield Academy, we want to give all children the best possible opportunities and experiences. We are very excited to share with you that our school will be implementing forest schools into our provision.

Forest school is an inspirational learning process that is centred around the child. It offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions, supporting play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem, through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting. The process supports and enables more than knowledge gathering, it helps learners develop socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically and intellectually. This style of learning is particularly beneficial to our children’s well-being. During Forest school sessions, children will engage in a range of outdoor activities including; making items out of natural resources, using tools, looking after our natural environment, den building and many other exciting activities.
