Earth Background: We were successful in securing a Forest School Award supported by the Public Health Agency in 2017/18. Our P6 and P7 classes all took part in the training and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

Building Forest School setting: Our vision is to Nurture, Inspire, Flourish. Forest Schools is a perfect vehicle to deliver these life skills to our pupils. We aim to roll out Forest Schools to all classes in our school. We regularly use our own school grounds and visit local Council Parks.
