At The Chalet School we have a wonderful school woodland garden. It is entirely fenced so the children have the chance to be free to explore, play and connect with nature. This helps them to build confidence and to understand their world. All activities in the garden are related to classroom learning and we have a dedicated garden teacher to work with the children each week.
All classes work in the garden on Permaculture which is a design system which creates resilient, sustainable relationships between human beings and the rest of the natural world. We ensure Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share are the core principals behind all we do in the garden. All garden learning is linked to the national curriculum and is centred on the individual child enjoying their outdoor learning experience to the full.
