Mrs Cook has been training, and is now qualifying, as an accredited Forest Schools Practitioner. To do this she needs to work with a specific group of children over time. The children will be learning academic, social and practical skills in an outdoor setting; in our own grounds and in our adjacent woods. Children taking part need to be dressed for any weather as this is not something that only takes place on sunny days. Other staff will also be taking part as the adult-child ratio needs to be 1-5. Once Mrs Cook is fully accredited she will be working with other groups and we hope, in time, to give all our children experience of the Forest Schools programme.
