We believe in learning through play and creating as much choice for our children to learn and develop. We feel strongly that the outdoor environment is just as important as the indoor and this is why our children are able to have free flow access in our large outdoor area on a daily basis as well using the wider outdoor space we have available to us within the school grounds, which includes a wonderful forest school that children can explore.
