In 1877 the school was gifted a parcel of land. Whilst the 2.75 hectares of land was originally transferred for school purposes, it had never been used by Goathland Primary School. In 2018, staff, Governors and parents began the process of developing the site into a Forest School.
With the help of The North York Moors National Park – Land of Iron Project our Forest School is now a reality and the children enjoy weekly lessons from our qualified Level 3 Forest School teacher, Mrs Bordoli
Forest School is an inspirational process, which offers ALL learners, regardless of academic ability, regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland or natural environment. It enhances learning across the curriculum by offering opportunities to explore and extend classroom learning, and supports our school Vision by fostering an appreciation of our unique local area.
