Background: St James Primary School and Whitehouse Primary School historically have very strong links together over many years. St James Primary School and Nursery Unit has a strong belief in developing and inspiring their pupils. The Forest School Programme was a perfect vehicle to encourage greater physical and mental activity, team building skills, communication and much more. Funding was secured through the Education Authorities Shared Education Fund in 2015. Initially the Nursery Unit participated but this is now spreading throughout the rest of the school.
Forest School setting: St James Primary School and Nursery Unit has a dedicated Forest School area. The site is perfect with seating and a fire pit. The site has hedgerows and mature trees and plenty of space to explore.
