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 will provide waterproof jackets and trousers but request that you provide:


  • old play clothes 
  • wellington boots or strong footwear
  • sun hats and suncream
  • appropriate clothing according to the weather.


Your child will get muddy, so old clothes only and pease be prepared to wash them after a session.

We have robust mechanisms in place to ensure the safety of your child is paramount. Every session is run by a fully qualified forest school practitioner, Mrs Craddock, and there is a higher staff : child ratio.
