What Do Parents Need To Know About Forest School?

Your child will regularly attend forest school in all weathers. The only exception being high winds and extreme weathers, so please assume that your child will be outside. 


We request that you provide: 

  • long sleeved top
  • trousers
  • wellies or strong footwear
  • extra pair of socks
  • a coat 
  • gloves, hat and scarf for the colder months
  • sun hats and sun cream for the warmer weather


Due to the nature of these sessions, clothes will get wet and muddy. Therefore, it is important that you provide old clothes that you don't mind getting dirty. 


We also highly recommend that your child wears waterproof clothing such as waterproof trousers and coat or overalls. Waterproof clothing is available to purchase through school for a fee of £13.50, or alternatively, you can provide your own waterproofs. We do have a limited number of spare overalls available.
