Pirehill First School


Forest School


This year, we are excited to launch our Forest School programme.  Forest School is a nationally accredited programme that provides learning opportunities through practical activities in an outdoor environment. Children enjoy the freedom to explore and experience the natural world in all seasons and in all weathers. Forest School embraces an approach of nurturing, supporting and developing the self-esteem of participants. It is an ideal environment in which to develop communication, innovation, problem solving, risk taking, creativity and teamwork.


Forest School at Pirehill is run by our two qualified Forest School Level 3 Leaders. It is accessed by all children and turns our woodland and field area into an outdoor classroom and natural playground. Using our woodland environment for children to learn and play, the forest school provides practical hands-on activities to capture interest and stimulate learning, whatever the weather!


Forest School is carried out in all weathers and it is a very enjoyable experience for both children and staff!
