As part of the afternoon sessions, designed specifically for the older children once they are in their final year at Pre-School before going onto Primary School, the children have an opportunity to visit Forest School.

It is part of an Oxfordshire County Council initiative to increase the amount of time children spend learning in the outdoors.  Forest School is a fenced area in a woodland setting where children are able to learn in an outdoor classroom.

The normal Foundation Curriculum is followed, but in an exciting outdoor setting. The children travel by minibus and the Pre-School provide waterproofs. There is a qualified Forest School teacher and a high child to adult ratio. All children will attend in term blocks throughout the year.

We require children to attend at least one other Pre-School session in addition to Forest School.
