Skegby Junior Academy

Forest School

Subject Intent

The aim of our Forest School is to develop a life-long love and understanding of the natural environment, whilst developing the core purposes of the Forest School ethos, namely, development of self-esteem, confidence and social skills. Through carefully planned activities, children from all year groups take part in Forest School each week to excel in areas of their personal, academic and spiritual development and following our 5R’s.


Subject Implementation

We operate our Forest School on our site and once a term on the Teversal Trail. Our Forest School was created by the staff and children and is organised into separate learning zones. The area contains a pond and pens for our chickens and rabbits. The Academy employs a Forest School Teacher to deliver the sessions and a member of SLT holds the Forest Schools qualification and oversees the whole learning experience.
