OutLET: Play Resource’s Forest School provides an important opportunity for children to gain access to the outdoors while learning academic and practical skills. The benefits of Forest School have been well
researched and documented. They include an increase in confidence, social skills, language, communication, motivation, concentration, physical skills and, importantly, self-regulation
