What Marston Vale Forest School says

Hi All, my name is Shona and I am the Founder of Marston Vale Forest School... I created Marston Vale Forest School back in 2013 after completing my Forest School Leadership Training with Bridgewater College. After raising my own two boys and working within a school, I wanted to create a safe, yet risky environment for children to discover the natural environment which is how my Forest School journey started. Now 6 years later, I run a number of sessions, and have more children exploring the woodland than ever before. Child Led Appreciation No Walls No WiFi WHAT IS FOREST SCHOOL Forest School is a programme of activities that takes place on a regular basis and provides learning opportunities in an outdoor environment. Children will enjoy the freedom to explore and experience the natural world in all seasons and in all weathers. The outdoor environment inspires children to grow in self-esteem, confidence, independence and social skills through small achievable tasks. They will learn how to risk assess and set boundaries to which they must work within. As the children grow in confidence they will undertake new experiences and take appropriate risks in a nurturing environment whilst remaining safe and in control. They will learn about the natural world around them and gain an appreciation for nature which will encourage them to be responsible for the environment in later life.
