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

I enjoyed the activities immensely because you were there to add knowledge, enthusiasm and a ‘different slant’ on our habitats topic. Your delivery at our school was fantastic and our aims to increase the children’s knowledge and enjoyment were met. The day was very well delivered, organised and managed. We were extremely impressed with how you were with the children and your knowledge of the topic. We shall be contacting you again to see if you have any other topics that you could deliver.

Andrea Farlow, Cockton Hill Junior School

Sam is a wonderful trainer.  His outdoor pursuits inspired us with a multitude of reasons to embrace all aspects of nature and outdoor life. The students attending this course were all motivated to follow in Sam’s footsteps and engage children in a variety of fun outdoor activities with children in their own settings.

Wendy Jackson, Bishop Auckland College

The children thoroughly enjoyed the session and developed their knowledge about the Stone Age. The day was fantastic. It was delivered very well, the children were engaged all day and they learnt a lot about the topic, as well as developing skills such as team building and problem solving.

Nicola Cooke, St. Anne’s CE Primary

Sam has worked with our children to teach them about saving and conserving energy. He explained a complicated concept in an entertaining and lively way that was accessible to all our children. He was friendly and approachable, encouraging easy communication with staff and children.
The children thoroughly enjoyed his lessons and continued to talk about what they had learnt, long after Sam had left. Sam has also been invaluable in promoting outdoor learning, training staff and has run inspirational forest schools sessions with our children. I would thoroughly recommend him to others!

Jeanne O’Keefe, Oxclose Nursery

The children thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor activities.  All the children were eager and excited to find out more.  A fantastic day – managed and delivered very well.  A really interesting way to focus on our topic of the Great Fire of London.
