Forest school is an inspirational learning approach within outdoor learning. It offers participants the opportunity to develop confidence, self-esteem and social skills through physical hands-on learning experiences in a woodland environment. Supporting the development of a relationship between the child and the natural world.

Forest School suits all abilities, but children who have low self-esteem or who find the traditional classroom setting a challenge will often hugely benefit from our sessions.

SEN Forest School

Dates: Friday 2 Feb, 1 Mar, 3 May, 10.30am-1.30pm

Our Forest School is a unique experience that offers participants the opportunity to succeed, explore and develop confidence through hands-on activities using natural resources outdoors.

SEN Forest School is for children with special education needs and will be a more relaxed drop-in style session. We will have an area set up with various forest school activities and play opportunities on offer which children can have a go at with our trained forest school staff. Children can join in with activities or wander and explore as needed.

These sessions are not for unaccompanied children and each child will need a one-to-one or parent with them. Children are the accompanying adult’s responsibility. All sessions are designed and led by trained Forest School practitioners.

Please ensure children are appropriately dressed for Forest School. Clothes should protect children from extremes of heat or cold, keep them covered to reduce the likelihood of cuts and scrapes and fit for comfort. Please be aware that in the woods it can often be cooler than expected.
