Forest School

Chapel End Infant School & Early Years Centre is an accredited Forest School with its own wild wood and maze. Karen Wishart, the Assistant Head for Early Years is the newly trained Forest School Lead and we are really excited about the plans that she has to develop learning through the natural environment.

The Forest Schools philosophy is to encourage and inspire through an innovative educational approach to outdoor play and learning in a woodland environment. Forest School programmes develop the physical, social, cognitive, linguistic and emotional aspects of the learner as well as developing a sense of awe and wonder of the natural world.
