Research shows Forest School programmes have a positive impact on children’s and young people’s resilience, confidence and wellbeing. Being absorbed in nature alleviates stress and depression, improves behaviour and raises self-esteem.
This programme provides problem solving activities and self-led experiential learning with risk and real consequence. Young people build self-efficacy, self-esteem, self-regard and interpersonal relationships. Forest School creates a safe environment where young people feel that they can challenge themselves and feel more at ease with expressing their fears and emotions.
Our bespoke Forest School programme can be pupil led or developed with school staff, linking directly to the curriculum.
