Aim

National Curriculum 2014

The National Curriculum 2014 requires that every child should develop practical skills in order to participate, compete and lead a healthy lifestyle

  • Arrive properly equipped for outdoor and adventurous activity.
  • Understand the need to show accomplishment in managing risks.
  • Show an ability to both lead and form part of a team.
  • Support others and seek support if required when the situation dictates.
  • Show resilience when plans do not work and initiative to try new ways of working.
  • Use maps, compasses and digital devices to orientate themselves.
  • Remain aware of changing conditions and change plans if necessary.

The Forest School programme offers children experiences that fulfil these requirements.
