On Friday 11th October our school Forest School Teacher will be holding a coffee and tea cake morning for busy parents after the school run. All cooked around the campfire in our lovely school forest school site, this is a great opportunity to celebrate the 4 years of forest school and share the great memories.

Be part of Forest School Day

In 2018 we held our first Forest School Day celebration of UK forest school. It was a great success with celebrations being held over the UK. In the first few days of launch, the website was viewed over 3,000 times, a facebook page post had a reach of 10,300 and we had over 200 individuals engage with the forest school day team. Not bad for a new idea!

In 2019 saw our 2nd Forest School Day celebration of UK forest school. We saw celebrations right across the UK.

So we are back again, and we have listened to your feedback and made it easier to join in. The main focus is to connect, share and celebrate all that is great and wonderful about forest school.
