Forest School

At St. Albert the Great Catholic Primary School, we are fortunate to have, not only a new and bespoke school building, but also a superb outdoor area. This includes a fantastic spinney, which is home to our ‘Forest School’.

We are delighted to provide weekly opportunities for our pupils to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in our woodland.

Led by Mrs Duggan, a qualified Forest School practitioner and Mr Whiting our Year 2 Teaching Assistant (who is also training to become a Forest School assistant), our pupils take part in a range of inspirational activities from shelter building and woodland crafts, to cooking on open fires.

Our ‘Forest School’ perfectly complements our whole school focus on ‘learning powers’, allowing the children to take supported risks and become resilient, independent and creative learners.
