Aiming High and Caring for Everyone.

Enabling children to flourish and succeed

Forest School

At Christ Church and St Peters Primary School we have two level 3 qualified Forest School leader, Mrs Elliott-Bark and Mr Rashleigh who can lead a variety of different activities in our outside forest learning space.

Forest School is a child-centred inspirational learning process, that provides opportunities for holistic growth. It is a long-term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.


The learning process helps and facilitates more than knowledge-gathering, it helps learners develop socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically and intellectually. It creates a safe, non-judgemental nurturing environment for learners to try new things and take risks. Our approach to risk means that learners constantly expand on their abilities by solving real-world issues, building self-belief and resilience. We believe that risk is more than just potential for physical harm, but a more holistic thing, there are risks in everything we do, and we grow by overcoming them. Forest School therefore, helps participants to become, healthy, resilient, creative and independent learners.
