‘Mighty Oaks grow from little Acorns.’

 

Our Stakesby Forest School ethos is to encourage our voracious learners to develop their own unique learning style through a holistic child led learning approach.

Children are encouraged to challenge, explore, and take age appropriate risks, work as a team and reflect and improve on their experiences.

Forest schools help build self-confidence, problem solving, handling responsibility, charging positive attitudes towards others and the outdoor space around them.
