Local Charity Provides Forest School Equipment for Compton and Up Marden CE School

By December 21, 2021No Comments
Christmas came early for the children at Compton and Up Marden CE Primary, with the delivery of brand new Forest School equipment, bought with funds kindly donated by The Stoughton, Walderton and Racton Village Hall Trust.
Forest School is a child-centred, inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It supports play, exploration and supported risk taking, and develops confidence and self-esteem through hands-on experiences in an outdoor setting.
A number of children living in the area of benefit attend Compton and Up Marden C of E Primary and so The Trust were keen to offer support to the School in this time of unprecedented challenge. 
Amongst the items purchased were: bow saws, axes, fire steels and tool boxes, which the children couldn’t wait to get their hands on!
