What is Forest School?

What is Forest School? 
Several years ago I was delighted to support the Oxfordshire Forest School Project and Teacher’s TV ( neither in existence now) with the filming of Charlbury School’s Forest School. On one of the very wettest days of my life we accompanied staff and children to the woods. It was good to see an experienced Forest School Leader empowering children to manage their own risks. It was my first opportunity to put my Outdoor First Aid into practice…before we had even reached the site!
Although Forest School has developed significantly since this film was made it still reflects the FS ethos and principles.
