Forest Schools

At Goldenhill Primary we develop the ‘whole child’; strongly focusing on holistic education. The introduction of ‘Forest School’ teaching is another dimension to this. The aim of Forest schools is to develop:

  • Self-Awareness.
  • Self-Regulation.
  • Intrinsic motivation.
  • Empathy.
  • Good social communication skills.
  • Independence.
  • A positive mental attitude, self-esteem and confidence.


Forest schools is taught to all classes from FS1-Yr6. Each class is split into 2 group, with a maximum of 15 pupils per group and will engage in a session, lasting an 1 ½ hours per week, for a period of 5 weeks.
