Forest School - encouraging and inspiring individuals through positive outdoor experiences

A Forest School is an innovative educational approach to outdoor play and learning in a woodland environment.


The philosophy of Forest Schools is to encourage and inspire individuals of any age through positive outdoor experiences over an extended period of time.


It is becoming increasingly recognised that this ‘outdoor’ approach to learning and play can have a great effect on the natural development of children.


We are very proud at Locking Preschool to have a qualified Forest School Leader.


Please see the photographs at the top of the page which show some of the activities children participate in during Forest School Sessions. These activities include using tools safely, carrot peeling, fire safety, making a forest school curtain and much more. For more photos please 

Locking Primary School

Locking Preschool has strongs links to Locking Primary School's Head Teacher, Staff and Pupils. We links with projects and visit them for education to promote community cohesion.  This includes Harvest celebrations, Sports Day, Music Festivals, Christmas Play and Much More! We have good relationships with the reception class staff to ensure a smooth transition from Pre School (FS1) to Primary School (FS2).

Saying Goodbye

We will be very sad but also excited on behalf of those children who will be moving onto Primary School.  We have watched them grow, change and are now ready to take on new challenges.  We wish them lots of luck and hope they enjoy school as much as we have enjoyed caring, educating and spending time with them.  Thank you to all our parents and families who have been on this journey with us, we will miss you, from all at Locking Pre School Staff and Committee.
