Forest School is a unique experience of outdoor education that allows children to develop confidence, self-esteem, independence and an appreciation of the natural environment.
The Eco-Schools programme is an ideal way for schools to embark on a meaningful path towards improving the environmental footprint of a school, a change which inevitably leads to a more sustainable, less costly and more responsible school environment.
Allotment and Gardening
Why is gardening so beneficial?
- It develops skills like co-operation, self-confidence, love of nature, reasoning and discovery
- It encourages physical activity and promotes responsibility and care for living things
- It teaches about the growth process, the environment and the food we eat
We were thrilled to be chosen by the WWF as a flagship school in which they were planning to create a wild garden for the children to use. The garden was planned and designed by professional gardener Frances Tophill and was brought to life by Plantation Gardening earlier this year.
Our spiritual garden was blessed and opened by the Archdeacon of Exeter in September 2018.It provides a valuable area for the children to enjoy a quiet space to reflect and relax during the school day. The children use the area individually and in groups when they feel the need for a calm, reflective space in which to sit.
