Home Education

Calling all home educated students!

We believe every child matters and every child should feel free in a safe space, being inclusive to all children is a key value in our charity and therefore your child is always welcome. This is something we can provide in our woodland during our sessions as our sessions allow your child to explore the woodland and learn new skills.

What Do We Offer?

Two bespoke courses aimed at home educated pupils aged 8 and above to develop a wide range of skills in our woodland. These courses are instructor-led and involve 3 sessions, once a month.

  • Level 1 involves: Plant and Tree ID, Navigation by the Stars, Water filtration and purification, Basic fire lighting skills. Once your child has completed this course, they may progress onto our more indepth Level 2 course!
  • Level 2 involves: Designing and creating an insect habitat, Basic health and safety of knife work, Carving a kitchen tool
  • Skills Development Days: These vary throughout the year depending on who we bring in to run sessions and the feedback we get from children & their parents/carers.  Most recently we ran a hurdle-making day using willow weaving and we’re looking at tree planting, basket creations and outdoor cooking for future sessions.

Cost £12.50 per session per child.

Dates for 2021/22 will be released in due course.

These sessions are 9:30 - 12:30 and each month we will be doing either a starter, main or dessert. Parents will be invited for the final session for certificate giving and to taste the food made during that session.
