Forest School


Here at Holme Slack we are excited to have the 'Hideaway' to provide pure 'Forest School' Sessions. 

Mrs Lenz is our Level 3 Forest School leader. 


The Forest Schools sessions will be run inline with the Forest School Association Ethos and Principles and follow the guidance and risk assessments within the Holme Slack Forest School handbook.


These sessions are within school time and parents of the children taking part will be notified and given more information on when these will take place. 


Parents will receive a consent letter to sign and return along with a kit list that their child needs to bring - these are items of clothing dependent on the season that they take part. 


We endeavour to provide any items that families may struggle with and are lucky enough to have class set of waterproofs and wellies in select sizes along with full length fleece lined puddle suits for our EYFS group.

Nature Friendly Schools


Here at Holme Slack we have been taking part in the Nature Friendly Schools Project to broaden our pupils learning in the outdoors. Enabling lessons to be taken outdoors in the natural environment. 

Teachers are able to use the 'Hideaway' area at Holme Slack School and all the grounds to teach various curriculum linked subjects.
