Corpus Christi Primary School

Forest School

 

Forest School is an inspirational process, that offers all learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment with trees.


Forest School is a specialised learning approach that sits within and compliments the wider context of outdoor and woodland education.

At Forest School all participants are viewed as:
· equal, unique and valuable
· competent to explore~and discover
· entitled to experience appropriate risk and challenge
· entitled to choose, and to initiate and drive their own learning and development
· entitled to experience regular success
· entitled to develop positive relationships with themselves and other people
· entitled to develop a strong, positive relationship with their natural world

This learner-centred approach interweaves with the ever-changing moods and challenges of the natural world through the seasons to fill every Forest School session and programme with discovery and difference. Yet each programme does also share a common set of principles, aimed at ensuring that all learners experience the cumulative and lasting benefits that quality Forest School offers.

Catholic Social Teachings

The Forest School curriculum at Corpus Christi provides many opportunities for children to develop their knowledge and understanding of the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, and to action that commitment through good works and words that show we live our faith in our community as a force for good.
