Forest School

Forest school is a long-term approach to education, for children, that maximises the benefits of learning in the outdoors. Whilst its roots are planted firmly in our best understanding of the theory of how children learn, it’s practice puts the learner at the heart of their learning experience. From this fundamental platform, forest school offers children the opportunity, over repeated visits, to engage with the rich natural diversity of the woodland environment to help build confidencesensitivityresilience and curiosity.

At Rainbow we use our very own mini bus to take groups of children to Byron’s Pool, a local beauty spot twice a week to experience the great outdoors.
