Home Education and Forest School

There are an estimated 50,000 children in the UK who are educated at home, and in most areas they have no formal provision of activities.

The Forest School approach is ideally suited to home educating families as it is based around child led experiential learning. Home educating families have specific circumstances and needs that are distinct from other groups and it is vital to understand and address these needs when running activities.
