Here at Cliff Lane, we are fortunate enough for our children to be able to experience some regular forest school sessions. We have a dedicated wildlife area on site, vegetable garden, a large expansive field, and an outdoor classroom to fulfil many exciting learning opportunities.
Forest school is based on a fundamental respect for children and their capacity to investigate, test and maintain curiosity in the world around them.
It believes in children’s right to play;
The right to access the outdoors, in particular a woodland environment;
The right to access risk and the vibrant reality of the natural world;
The right to experience a healthy range of emotions, through all the challenges of social interaction,
To build resilience that will enable continued and creative engagement with their peers to reach their full potential.
