Forest School

We have a Forest School site, 20 minutes walk from school.

Forest School is an inspirational process that offers our Year 1 children an opportunity to achieve and develop self confidence through hands on experience in a woodland.


Each week, our Forest School teacher, Mrs Murtagh, takes a group of children up to our site , and they enjoy a mixture of games and activities. Favourite activities include potion making, bug collecting, mud faces, nest building and den making.

The skills the children learn support their emotional resilience and self regulation.


We also have a fire pit on our school site and fire lighting and toasting marshmallows is a very popular week at Forest School! 


We are lucky to have tremendous support from Olney Town Council groundsmen to keep our site safe and interesting.
