Forest School

From January 2022, pupils will spend time outside the classroom enjoying Forest School sessions.  Each class will attend Forest School for a minimum of six weeks.

The Forest School activities enable children to learn new skills and use tools in a controlled and safe environment.  All activities are risk assessed thoroughly and the ratio of adult to child is 1:8.  Come rain or shine, the children will be ready to learn and therefore we need to ensure that they are wearing suitable outdoor clothing:

  •  Old t-shirt or comfortable long sleeve top
  •  Wellingtons or sturdy trainers
  •  Waterproof trousers or spare trousers (i.e. jogging bottoms - PE kit joggers are fine)
  •  Waterproof jacket/ Warm fleece/ Warm coat if the weather is cold

Children will wear their Forest School clothes to school and old clothes are preferable.  If your child does not bring spare clothes, then they WILL still be allowed to participate, but please bear in mind that their school uniform will almost certainly get dirty!
