Suckley School

Happy, Aspirational and Ready for Life

Forest School

Our forest school is an inspirational, educational process that focuses on developing children's personal, social and emotional development through regular outdoor woodland experiences. The ethos of forest school at Suckley is to allow children the time and space to develop skills, interest and understanding through a range of activities which provide practical, hands on experiences in a natural environment. 


Every child has a Forest School session once a week.  This underpins our ethos and values that mental health and how biophillia can impact on all children.
