Wistanstow School opened its own dedicated Forest School area in April 2016.
Our Forest school is based in a privately owned field near to the school. We are grateful to the owners of the field for letting us have use of this area. A full risk assessment has been done on the site to make it safe for children of all ages.
We employ Stephanie Bellows, a qualified Forest School Leader from the Secret Hills Centre in Craven Arms to organise and plan the sessions for us.
We intend to use the site to enhance our curriculum, particularly in Science. We find that children are stimulated and interested when working outdoors and love doing practical activities.
