Forest School
Forest School experiences are delivered weekly at each 5 Star Club (after school) and during school holidays. Children who engage in and are stimulated by regular outdoor learning develop increased confidence, learning capacity, enthusiasm, problem solving skills and well-being. Activities include (but are not limited to) outdoor cooking (campfire), den making, wood whittling, natural art & craft, spotting minibeasts, climbing trees and establishing physical and behavioural boundaries.

Children based at the 5 Star Club at Bishop Ellis Primary School and The Merton Primary School participate in weekly football sessions. These sessions improve health and fitness, teach children the skill of co-operation (team work) and life lessons about winning and losing.
