The Forest School initiative is a growing movement within primary education to move the classroom outside. The philosophy inspires individuals of all ages through an innovative, long term, educational approach to outdoor play and learning in a woodland environment. (Forest Schools Education, No date)
The concept of outdoor education is something I thoroughly believe in and have begun exploring the possibility of establishing a forest school within the masterplan for Felthorpe I'm developing within my project work.
Surrounded by woodland, Felthorpe is the ideal location to develop a Forest School. The innovative approach to education will increase demand for places and a visiting schools partnership will provide weekly Forest Schooling to schools in neighbouring communities.
