“Lee has been working with the school from the beginning of September 2017. As a school we were looking to develop key skills in our children that were not as easily developed in a classroom environment. From the outset, Lee has been extremely focussed and organised, delivering enriching and exciting learning opportunities for the pupils. As a result we are already seeing the pupils improving in their skills such as independence, resilience and communication skills. We work closely with Lee to further develop the learning experiences for our vulnerable pupils. Lee informs us of the planning for the sessions, gives regular and termly feedback and provides opportunities for members of staff to learn strategies. We as a school are very impressed with the intervention of Forest schools that Lee is providing and look forward to building a strong long term link with the service he provides.”
"Thanks so much to Lee and his wonderful team for a brilliant forest school afternoon on Saturday. 45 excited 8-year olds had an amazing time. Chantry woods are so beautiful and the kids loved the fresh air, freedom and adventure. A particular hit was the den building and, of course, the toasted marshmallows. Lee and the rest of the team did a great job keeping the kids' attention with a variety of activities, from whittling stick men and sawing necklaces to den building and balancing on the slack rope. Can't recommend it more highly - thanks again."
From first contact Lee was friendly, helpful and accomodating, even getting hobnobs for the s'mores to take into account my son's allergies. On the day I was impressed with how quickly he learnt the children's names and included all of them; even the shy ones were running around laughing within a few minutes. Thank you for a fantastic party!
