Sessions are delivered by Lauren Kinnersley, who has over 12 years experience delivering Forest School, who qualified as a Level 3 Forest school Leader in 2006 with Archimedes.  Lauren is DBS checked, fully insured, with a certificate in Forest School First Aid and Level 2 award in Food Safety.

I currently deliver Forest Schools within Local Authority schools, as well as offering after school clubs, open to all, at Iona school, Sneinton for 5-11 year olds', and Parent and Toddler Forest school sessions in Bridgford Park. 

I run Forest school parties on the land at Iona school in Sneinton.  The site has a pizza oven, so you can extend your Forest school experience with pizzas cooked on the land.  See the attached PDF document for details. 


"Thanks again for a great party! The kids all had an amazing time and the adults were pretty blown away too." Karen Reay, parent 


Into the Wild Wood takes an approach to Forest school which embodies the six core Forest School principle:  


Principle 1: Forest School is a long-term process of frequent and regular sessions in a woodland or natural environment, rather than a one-off visit. Planning, adaptation, observations and reviewing are integral elements of Forest School.



Principle 2: Forest School takes place in a woodland or natural wooded environment to support the development of a relationship between the learner and the natural world.



Principle 3: Forest School aims to promote the holistic development of all those involved, fostering resilient, confident, independent and creative learners



Principle 4: Forest School offers learners the opportunity to take supported risks appropriate to the environment and to themselves.



Principle 5. Forest School is run by qualified Forest School practitioners who continuously maintain and develop their professional practice.


Principle 6. Forest School uses a range of learner-centred processes to create a community for development and learning
