For Schools

Setting up a Forest School can involve considerable time and investment in terms of training, equipment, planning and risk assessment.
At Chichester Forest Schools we can provide:

  • Qualified experienced Level 3 Forest School Practitioners
  • All tools and equipment
  • Planning, risk assessment and curriculum links
  • Outdoor first aid trained
  • Fully insured £5,000,000 Public liability Insurance
  • recognised provider for West Sussex
  • Trained providers of John Muir Award
  • Wild Beach trained

We are already using several wonderful woodland sites in the Chichester area and would seek to negotiate a suitable woodland site for your school.

How is Forest Schools organised?

Forest school sessions are led by a trained Level 3 Forest School Practitioner. To benefit from Forest schools it is recommended that children have a minimum of 6 introductory sessions. Usually these are morning or afternoon sessions, although some schools prefer to arrange whole days of forest school. We also provide after school clubs, holiday clubs and can run one off woodland sessions around particular topic areas. e.g. Stig of the Dump, magical kingdoms.
