Forest School

Forest School is a child-centred inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a 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 process helps and facilitates more than knowledge-gathering, it helps pupils develop socially, emotionally, spiritually, physically and intellectually. It creates a safe, non-judgemental nurturing environment for pupils to try stuff out and take risks. Forest School inspires a deep and meaningful connection to the world and an understanding of how a pupil fits within it.

 

The Forest school approach to risk means that learners constantly expand on their abilities by solving real-world issues, building self-belief and resilience. 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.

 

At Prospect House we have developed modules in line with the Forest School ethos and offer this in line with support for learning model at wave 1, 2 and 3 provisions. We ave also developed ideas for learning outside of the classroom as a cross curricular offer.
