St Martin’s Garden Primary School is committed to giving children the opportunity to learn in the outdoor environment and receive the benefits and experiences the natural world has to offer. Taking learning outside is beneficial in promoting children’s self-esteem, wellbeing, creativity, collaborative learning, team building and problem solving all through hands on experience. Forest School aims to promote the holistic development of all those involved, fostering resilient, confident, and independent learners, these qualities feedback positively into the classroom and other settings. Children are encouraged to be curious, explore and take managed risks, every child is the centre of their own learning.

It is continually being developed to give a broad range of experiences, it has a log circle base camp with a permanent fire site, bug hotels, It is a truly magical site with ample space for children to learn and play
