HAF forest school holiday club
PLEASE NOTE – there are now a limited number of non benefit related spaces each day that can be booked if you think your child would benefit from Forest school sessions.
Our holiday club at Rimrose is part of the HAF activities fund so open for children in receipt of benefit related free school meals. Please only book if you are entitled. We will check each booking against Sefton councils register. Children not entitled will not get a place. We do have 3 spaces for places with our discretion for children who may benefit that are not on free school meals, so please email [email protected] to discuss.
Please email if you would like to pay for a space.
10:30-3pm open for 5-14 years old, including campfire healthy lunch.
What to bring-
Please can you ensure your child wears warm/waterproof clothing and boots. We suggest children where a base layer, long sleeve top, jumper, fleece and waterproof coat, warm pants and waterproof pants. It is better to have too many layers and take them off even on a warm day.
Some snacks and a large drink.
Any medication your child self-administers eg inhalers. We do have a medication form if you require our staff to administer medication.
What will my child be doing?
Children will arrive and be taken to the forest; here we will go through our health and safety rules with the children.
Our sessions are led by the children, they can choose what they want to do and our team of experienced forest school practitioners will follow the children’s lead on what activities we offer. We will also provide some structured activities like den building, fire lighting, team games and tool crafts following the children’s interest.
After our picnic lunch in the woods, we will build a fire and toast some campfire snacks. There are toilets and hand washing facilities back on site
We have a positive behaviour policy where we respect each child as an individual and discuss problems rather than an authoritative approach.
We have a full Forest school handbook that is available for you to read with more information on our policies and procedures. Please let us know if you require a copy.
