Woodland Nurturing

In order to develop the ‘whole child’ all of our children take part in Woodland Nurturing forest school sessions on a regular basis at Bailey’s Court. Woodland Nurturing is a long term child-led process that supports the social, emotional and physical development of children in an outdoor, preferably woodland environment. Younger children take part in Woodland Nurturing activities on the school site, older children at Hortham Wood. Research has shown that forest school sessions can have a significantly positive impact on promoting children’s attitudes to learning, they feel good about themselves, learn to value themselves, each other and the environment around them.
