Forest Schools

At Lidget Green Primary School we run a Forest Schools from our own school grounds.

A Forest School allows children to become comfortable with an outdoor approach to education and play in familiar surroundings.  A fully trained Forest School practitioner, runs the forest school  with groups of children throughout school. The children have the opportunity to engage with hands-on learning in a wild natural environment.
