Copthorne's Forest School Vision

Copthorne CE Junior School’s Forest School Vision


Copthorne CE Junior School’s own vision of "Creating Confident, Curious Learners" directly mirror the principles of Forest School.


Through engaging with nature and wildlife, children gain more knowledge and respect for their immediate environment and how we affect the wider environment in general.


Small, achievable tasks and allowing children time to follow their own interests enables all learners to achieve, which will in turn increase self-esteem and confidence. This confidence translates into all areas of learning.


Working in the outdoor environment gives children time to work collaboratively, learn to solve problems and take risks. The experience of regular Forest School sessions helps to build resilient, inquisitive and imaginative learners.
