Tipton Green provides forest school to enhance your children’s learning experiences; your child may already have experienced forest school in the past but if not this will be another exciting opportunity for them. Forest school aims to engage children and young people with the natural environment, activities have a strong emphasis on raising self esteem, confidence and independence. An integral element of the session is that children and young people will experience the outdoors on a weekly basis and in all weathers.
Forest school supports children to care for their natural environment and have fun outside, digging; getting dirty; using all their senses to explore; building dens and much more. We have very robust safety mechanisms in place to ensure that the safety of your children is paramount. Every forest school session is run by a qualified forest school leader (Luke Blackham is currently working towards level 3 and is able to lead sessions as part of his training), our adult: child ratios are higher than a normal to ensure adequate supervision and all relevant risk assessments and health and safety procedures are in place to ensure risks are minimised.
Tipton Green staff are really excited about offering this opportunity to our children and young people and we know that the experiences and skills they learn will support them throughout their lives, if you have any questions regarding forest school please do not hesitate to contact us.
