Our Ethos, Values and Mission

Connection, Growth, Exploration, sustainability

Our Forest School Ethos underpins everything that takes place within the Forest School. It encompasses our beliefs and values, purpose and passions.

Our Policies are built upon our Ethos and  show what we will follow through on with the experiences we create. They are the principles which guide decisions and are statements of intent which outline Canopy Forest School procedures.

The practice and experiences that we deliver are based upon our Ethos and Policies. 

Throughout all Forest School sessions observations are continually being taken to assess whether we are fulfilling our Ethos. From these observations we will adjust and review  our practice.

Observations and Feedback


At Canopy Forest School we believe in the importance of acknowledging the significant impact of climate change on the world, and commit to taking meaningful action to reduce our environmental impact.

To us a climate emergency means that we:

• Acknowledge the scientific indicators e.g., IPCC reports on warming and UN reports on loss of biodiversity and consequences of economic growth.

• Accept the urgency of the situation: if we have a real chance of tackling these issues, we must take urgent and immediate action within the next few years.

• Acknowledge that our purpose as educators is to connect the communities we work with to the natural world, model sustainable education practices and teach about the great importance of taking action to support of the minimisation of climate change.
