Kit list- What you need to bring to Forest School

We have a saying amongst the Forest School Community- "There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing!"  

In order to ensure the comfort and safety of all our participants, we ask that you come fully prepared to our sessions. We are outdoors in all weathers so the correct clothing is essential. Please take a moment to look at our kit list. We also ask that all kit is ladled with the children's name to prevent items getting lost. 

Summer - 

  • Light weight long sleeve top & full length trousers or leggings-no skirts or bare legs please 

(this will prevent you from getting stung/scraped or bitten from nettles, brambles, insets/ticks). 

 

  • Light waterproof jacket & waterproof over trousers 

(always a good idea to have in the bag even if its not raining as Forest School can get messy and muddy)

(no open toed shoes or sandals please)
