Forest Schools

A forest school is an outdoor education delivery model in which students visit natural spaces to learn personal, social and technical skills. At Risley we are fortunate to have a very large school garden with a small area of dense woodland that affords us and our pupils the chance to learn and experience the outdoors in safe and secure environment.

We have two members of staff who are qualified to deliver lessons around wellbeing and recognising the social, emotional and physical needs of pupils. Our school garden is a blank canvas, full of textures and materials to enrich the senses and stimulate the learning journeys that we will all undertake.
