Forest school is an inspirational process that offers children regular opportunities to achieve, develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a natural environment.
We at North Duffield Primary are very lucky to have our own dedicated woodland area within our school grounds, which we have been developing over the last year to create an 'outdoor classroom', and several growing zones. Our sensory garden is also now complete!
Mrs Duffy has now completed her nationally accredited, Level 3 Forest School qualification.

Forest School wouldn't have been possible without the generosity of a few local heroes....
