Brockmoor Primary School


Our Ethos

The Forest School at Brockmoor is a welcoming place where there are opportunities for all children to develop an appreciation and understanding of the wonders of our natural environment through a process of discovery and exploration.


We believe that everybody should have regular access to a woodland or natural environment which provides them with inspirational and challenging outdoor learning opportunities.  Forest School offers a learner centred approach, where children can learn through self-directed play and exploration.  Children will be given the opportunity to develop their curiosity, confidence, self-esteem, creativity, empathy, communication skills, knowledge of the natural environment and ability to assess risk.


Learners will be developing lifelong skills that will be transferable through schooling and into adult hood including: developing confidence, self-esteem, creativity, empathy, developing social skills through team work, communicating, discussing and reflecting.
