Forest School

Forest School at Pedmore

Forest school began in Sweden in the 1950s. It was brought over to the UK in the 1990s. For more information about forest school in the UK see this link Forest School Association.

At Pedmore, all children have the opportunity to experience Forest Schoool at different times throughout the school year. It encourages risk taking, team building and gives the children opportunities to initiate learning. It also helps to nurture the respect that we all need to show to nature.

Each session is run by a Level 3 qualified Forest School Leader and the children have the opportinuity to experience all kinds of outdoor provision, including den building, camp fires and whittling.
