The philosophy of Forest Schools is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive outdoor experiences.
By participating in engaging, motivating and achievable tasks and activities in a woodland environment each participant has an opportunity to develop intrinsic motivation, and sound emotional and social skills. These, through self awareness can be developed to reach personal potential.
Children in Windrush and Cherwell take part in Forest School one morning each week, led by a trained Forest School Leader. We are very lucky to have the use of two Forest School sites.
The first site is based on the school grounds at the bottom of the field. In this area we have numerous amount of trees in which the children can climb, create dens and build rope swings. We also have an insect area, a story telling circle and a fire pit. The second site is in the grounds of Radley College. It is a small area in the little woods. Children will experience a different area in which to investigate and explore.
