Forest School

What is our aim for our Forest School learners?


At Rauceby Primary School we have decided to expand and enhance the breadth of our curriculum by incorporating a designated outdoor learning and Forest School curriculum that will become part of our weekly routine. It is our aim that this new LOtC (Learning Outside the Classroom) will uphold the high standards and expectations that our school sets for its pupils and lead to increasing their life skills and experiences throughout their primary school education by 

  • building self-esteem and confidence in children.  

  • building resilient, determined and independent learners  

  • developing children’s personal, social and emotional development.  

  • developing children’s and encourage creativity  

  • encouraging collaboration.  

  • developing and build the ideas of risk management and risk benefit  

  • improving children’s life skills and experiences  

  • enabling children to gain a respect for the natural environment and wildlife.
