Information for New Starters

Your child will be at Forest School this half term. Please read the information below. Your class teacher will be in touch about which group your child will be in. 

What does my child need to bring with them?
  • A water bottle

  • Wellies or waterproof shoes

  • Waterproof over-trousers  and coat (this can be in a bag if hot)

  • Suncream if needed

  • Sunhat/Gloves/Warm hat as needed

How does it work?


All year groups will have a term of Forest School sessions once a year. The year group will be split into two groups. One will attend for one half term, the other for the second half term. The class teacher will choose the groups.


Who will run the sessions


Kay and Laura will run the sessions. Both are very experienced Forest School leaders and are already known to many of the children, they also run our after school and holiday clubs.

What about Nursery?


The Nursery school will continue to access the Forest School as they do now, every week.

Will the intervention/SEN afternoon Forest School groups still happen?


Yes! Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon groups will remain for those children who need this service. The school SENCO chooses the children for these groups.
