Forest School

 

"The philosophy of Forest Schools is 'to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through an innovative, long term, educational approach to outdoor play and learning in a woodland environment."

Here at Suckley School we firmly believe in the benefits of outdoor learning. Every child has a learning session at Forest School once a week, and we have recently opened an after school club too.

Forest School accreditation.

 

The Forest School Association is the professional body and UK wide voice for Forest School, promoting best practice, cohesion and 'quality Forest School for all'. Its charitable purpose is "the advancement of education for public benefit through promotion and support of quality Forest School in the United Kingdom using any means to enable all children, young people and adults to benefit from increased opportunities for high quality and varied educational experiences in the natural world."

 

Suckley School is very proud of our area and practice and has become accredited with this association, which is an exacting process demanding a high level of practice. We are the 1st school in Worcestershire, and only the 7th in the country.
