Forest School at St John and St Francis Church School
Forest School Lead – Mrs Sarah Nurcombe
Forest School Teaching Assistant – Mrs Amanda Fisher
We are fortunate at St John and St Francis Church School to have a site which offers diverse opportunities for all our children. We provide outdoor leaning experiences for all our children, which vary from Forest School style learning, to gardening and looking after our school grounds.
The benefits of children learning outside the classroom have been proven in recent years and we certainly see the children gain in confidence and independence over their time with us.
Their visits start in the EYFS classes and continue throughout their time at our school. Please see Progression Document below.
This outdoor opportunity allows children more freedom to follow their own ideas and interests in a less structured way.
