Jessica had a brilliant day at forest school, she enjoyed the variety of activities and came home beaming about everything she'd done. She couldn't wait to show me everything she had made and tell me all the things she had done, especially making a fire and toasting marshmallows!

All the staff are really upbeat and engaging. My son absolutely loves going and I hear the same from other parents with kids in other schools too, making friends and learning new forest school skills.

My daughter has SEN and the staff have been brilliant in communicating to better understand and help her. She LOVES being outdoors and the demands on her are vastly reduced at forest school. My daughters favourite thing is being able to choose the activities she gets involved with, especially muddy play.

thank you all for providing such wonderful holiday clubs at Burton Primary School

I just wanted to send an email to thank you all for providing such wonderful holiday clubs at Burton Primary School this year. My son Morgan has loved them so much and I can honestly say that its the only holiday club I have found that he actually always looks forward to attending. You all do such a fantastic job, there's nothing better as a full time working Mum than the peace of mind of knowing that whilst I can't be looking after my child during the holidays, he is living his best life at Forest School.

A special shout out to Miss Tabor who he particularly loves, she is a very special person and a true credit to Primary Forest School.

At St Catherine's we have been so impressed by the dedication and the innovation of all the leaders we have had at school, the adaptability of the leaders and the fantastic lessons they taught, a consistant programme of learning and the staff adaptability.

The afternoon sessions were amazing, the children benfited so much from the small group activities and trying new things. The take-up on the afterschool club was good and offered something different for the children to be be involved in. We are so pleased the children have been given this opportunity. Thank you.

Ellen is an exceptionally driven and passionate practitioner. She has worked incredibly hard to produce engaging sequences of lessons that provide every child with the opportunity to enjoy learning outside and excel. She is professional at all times and will immerse herself in school life, offering to support and help whenever she can.

We are delighted to have her support and expertise at Mrs Ethelston’s Primary.

It has been a privilege to witness
our pupils grow

Primary Forest Schools and Sports Education led superbly by Ellen have worked with St. George’s Primary School to plan and deliver a bespoke Forest School curriculum across the primary phase. Their personal and professional approach from the initial meeting has helped us develop a successful partnership that provides the children with an exciting, fun, inclusive, inspiring and safe Forest School experience. Everything is covered from the paperwork (legal, planning, risk assessments) to the practical. Ellen and her team provide a wealth of experience and deliver knowledgeable, engaging sessions catered to the class and/or individual. It has been a privilege to witness our pupils grow in confidence and improve their self-esteem, whilst fostering a sense of bravery and inquisitiveness.  Primary Forest School and Sports Education has helped our children develop a love for learning and the environment around us in the natural world.  I would thoroughly recommend them.

Michael Coombs – Deputy Head
