Our Forest School is based in Leigh St Mary's C of E Primary, Leigh, Lancashire, within the school grounds. I am Michaela Johnson and I'm a Level 3 Teaching Assistant as well as the in house Level 3 qualified Forest School Practitioner.
Leigh St Mary's Forest School is here to provide a specialised learning approach. This will involve all children having an equal, unique and extremely valuable opportunity to discover nature and themselves.
This will also involve the children taking appropriate risks, experiencing new challenges and success through achievable tasks. The sessions will be a child-interest led learning experience, helping the children to create positive relationships and becoming environmentally aware.
