Forest School

Forest School is a child-centred inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long-term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. This fosters resilience, confidence, creativity and independence in each participant along with developing skills and a positive relationship with the natural environment.
Forest School activities can include things such as den building, fire lighting, campfire cooking, natural arts and crafts along with games and opportunities for play and exploration. Activities are learner led with the support of the Forest School leader and assisting staff.

North West Kent Countryside Partnership is able to offer various Forest School services to schools; whether they are interested in creating their own Forest School area and need advice and help making it or would like us to come and deliver a Forest School programme for them. Please contact Stephanie or Amanda if you are interested in developing Forest School in your school.

Our Forest School sessions cost £300 per day and fit in to the school day. Usually schools divide the day into two sessions with groups of 16 or less pupils attending one of the sessions, before swapping groups after lunch break. Each school term is divided into 6 or 7 sessions with different year groups attending each term.
