Forest School Assistants

Children in Year 5 have the opportunity to apply to become Forest School Assistants. This is an exciting role which gives those selected the chance to support the learning experienced in our outside Forest School environment. This role has the potential to develop confidence, sense of responsibility, problem solving skills, organisation of themselves and others and the ability to assess risks.


What Roles and Responsibilities do they have?


Forest School Assistants are involved in helping to set up activities before the start of the session and help to pack away at the end, ensuring the area is left without having a negative impact on the environment and animals that live within our site. Forest School Assistants have the chance to share and demonstrate their skills and knowledge as they are buddied up with classes, where they play an important role in supporting, encouraging and assisting pupils.


Above all, they are expected to be excellent role models to others, ensuring others make the most of their learning experiences and remain safe at all times.


Forest School Assistants proudly wear their pin badges which help to identify them.
