Forest School

Forest School is an inspirational process that offers all our pupils regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self esteem, through hands – on learning experiences in our woodland areas. Our Forest School encourages children to foster an understanding and love for the natural world. At Old Park Forest School, children have the freedom to explore and discover whilst initiating and driving their own learning. This gives children ample opportunity to recognise and take appropriate risks, work together, solve problems and build resilience. Forest School is an inclusive process and allows children of all abilities to enjoy and learn. The styles of learning used at Forest School maximise emotional, social and behavioural development. These support the child to succeed in their experiences, meaning their self – esteem and confidence will grow.
We all enjoy going into our wonderful 'Forest' and learning about our world in the best classroom in the school!

During 2015 our new Outside Classroom was built in our Forest School.  This Eco-friendly room has allowed all of our students the opportunity to work out in the Forest in all weathers.  We were fortunate in our bid to Dudley Healthy Schools Public Health Programme, and received some funding that helped us to achieve this accessible work space.
