Forest school ethos

Thoresby Vale Primary Academy is going to be unique to the Diverse Academies Trust in that it will be a ‘forest school’, built on the principles of ‘Friluftsilv’.

Friluftsilv (pronounced free-loofts-leev) is the Norwegian concept of getting outdoors and ‘open-air living’.

Thoresby Vale Primary Academy will be learner-centred and promote supported risk-taking to embed self-esteem, creativity, confidence and independence in its pupils.

During the school year children will experience a series of long-term sessions in a wooded area that builds on the needs and development of the child.
