Forest School developments at Osborne School

As part of our school development plan, we are going to be incorporating a Forest School Offer into our curriculum.  In order to do this, we are looking to develop our ‘forest’ on the far side of the field to the school, into a more usable space for pupils to access different elements to their curriculum and to provide a new and exciting way to access their learning.  With this in mind the school has already cleared some of the ground and laid a wheelchair friendly pathway through the forest.

The purpose of this post is twofold.  The first is to gauge the level of interest in forming a volunteer group to help set up the five different zones we plan to develop to support our pupils in this new and exciting way to learn.  The second is to ask whether there are any parents or family members who have specific skills in construction, horticulture, wood work or any tree surgeons who might be able to offer some help and expertise in this venture. If anyone is interested or could offer help or expertise, please contact Heidi Hack in the first instance by emailing or leave a comment below. Once we have an idea of interest, we will be hoping to organise a meeting online to discuss this further.

    Heidi, hello. I work with Lydia in 8LSi. I’m a qualified teacher doing my SENCo working in school as an LSA. I’m also currently doing my masters in psychology of mental health and well-being. Alongside I’m working with the Boaz project developing links towards creating a reflection garden at my children’s primary school. I’d love to get involved with the Forest School initiative.
