At Byron Primary School, Forest Schools provides a nurturing space that supports all our children’s well-being by providing and implementing positive, outdoor, child - centred experiences in a natural setting. Children are active, take ownership of their learning and develop their self-esteem through a variety of independent tasks they take ownership of. Children develop knowledge of sustainability and respect for their learning environment and the outdoors as a whole. They develop their teamwork skills and increase their capability to work together to solve problems in a variety of ways, taking into account one another’s ideas. Positive relationships are built through these sessions. At Byron Primary we aim to use this powerful approach to learning, to teach our children to be independent, self-motivated, courageous, considerate and set them up for lifelong learning.
