Welcome to our Forest School

  • Here at Speen school we are a recognised Forest School Provider by the Forest School Association. We believe that every young person should experience the world beyond the classroom as an essential part of learning and personal development, whatever their age, ability or circumstance.  We have two forest school sites, one within the School grounds and we are lucky enough to have an area of woodland, 10 minute walk way through a field.  As a credited Forest School we are able to offer all children from Little Apples Pre school through to Year 2 weekly morning and afternoon sessions rain or shine.

    We have two credited staff members who have completed the Forest School Association training.

    What our parents think:

    “Outdoor learning transforms learning. It’s also a brilliant opportunity to utilise the beautiful outside areas that Speen School and village are so fortunate to have.”

    “I was a regular Forest school helper at another school so saw first-hand, how it helped with confidence building and understanding of the world, as well as improving children’s gross motor skills. “

    “I think Forest school is an amazing opportunity and the children all benefit from it.”

    Its her most favourite day of the week.  They learn so much and enjoy every muddy second!”
