Forest School

At West Rise, we grow Forest Schoolers who…

  • know how to embrace the natural world
  • develop skills and confidence from being in nature to benefit them throughout school life and beyond
  • understand that all living things are important and we should respect them

Forest School is a child-centred inspirational learning process. It offers opportunities for holistic growth. It supports play, exploration and supported risk taking.

Children develop confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.

They can experience success in areas not available to them in a classroom setting.
