SC.OUT.ED offer PPA cover using the Forest School approach to learning in your own setting.

Tailored to different age groups, sessions are essentially child-led and give children the opportunity to learn key skills and concepts in a practical and meaningful way.

We can also link to your science topics through Forest School – ‘Plants’, ‘Habitats’ and ‘Seasonal Change’.

Activities provide opportunities that:

  • Increase self-esteem & self-confidence
  • Improve listening and speaking skills
  • Contribute to the development of language
  • Improve children’s ability to work cooperatively
  • Improve physical and motor skills
  • Forest School is also a very effective stimulus for learning back in the classroom

The Forest School approach to learning:

  • Creative activities such as outdoor art & patterns in nature
  • Curriculum specific topics
  • Developing bushcraft skills – shelter building and cooking on a fire
  • Using our senses to explore the environment
  • Encouraging teamwork & cooperation
“This PPA has had a positive impact on learning in other areas as well as providing lifelong memorable experiences and motivated the children.
It has been an honour and a privilege to work with SC.OUT.ED. – the best PPA provision I have ever had!”
(Mr Walker, Ackworth Howard C of E)

What People Say

A very useful CPD that delivered ideas for creative outdoor activities and experiments for science as well as cross curricular links. Thank you for a great day!

Gemma Preece, St Oswald’s

Sam has organised a number of community learning events with me. He is very organised and plans great learning experiences for adults and children.  Children and their carers raved about the cooking on the fire and the fauna identification activities in their evaluations.  I would highly recommend a Sam Jackson led event at any school.

Helen Grainger, Esh Winning Primary

Sam’s approach to our science topic, ‘dissolving’, promoted autonomy and self discovery. The children learnt some theory, put the theory into practise and then explained what had happened – the children loved it! I have learnt that the children need to have time for self discovery in order to better understand science. Sam was extremely organised and it made for a stress free activity day. I’d seriously recommend Sam to other schools, he’s great!

Dawn Whaley, Hartside Primary School

This was the most enjoyable training course I’ve been on in some time! The course leaders were really helpful and knowledgeable. I feel inspired to motivate the children and to start some growing activities! Thank you so much.

Louise Gardner, St Mary’s RCVA Primary

Over the three sessions, all the children learnt new skills and enjoyed their time outdoors! It gave me increased knowledge and the confidence to plan and to deliver similar activities myself. The original aim, to link to PE and specifically an outdoor and adventurous activity core task, was met – especially on teamworking and cooperation. All the sessions were well planned and organised and they were delivered and managed well. Every activity challenged the children and taught them new skills. It was good to see less confident children have the opportunity to shine too!
