Forest Schools at Bannerman Road
At Bannerman Road Community Academy we provide Forest Schools sessions for all children from Nursery to Year six.
The Forest School approach to learning places the child at the centre of their own education and emphasises the importance of children being allowed to explore the natural world with appropriate support. Forest School encourages children to explore and develop their own interests in an outdoor environment. Forest Schools offer children opportunities to play freely, solve problems, take risks and follow their own interests and ideas. Enabling children in this way promotes self-confidence and self-esteem.
