Home Education Groups

Fantastic and fun alternative education provision for Home Educating families in Escot, Exmouth, Combe Martin, Totnes and Okehampton

Aimed at children over 6 years old, our Home Education Groups are a great opportunity for children to embark upon a programme of exciting forest school activities that develop practical skills, creativity, confidence, and teamwork. Children are encouraged to make their own decisions and judgements and work together as part of a group in a relaxed, outdoor environment. Our experienced forest school leaders are on hand to guide children through a variety of activities and challenges, but they also empower children to use their own ideas and, of course, give them the space and freedom to play.

The Woodlanders

Woodlanders: Inclusive Home Education Provision

We strive to be an inclusive provision for all children and young people. To this end, we established a group specifically for home educated neurodiverse children in 2018 which supports them through their Forest School journey. Our Woodlanders provision has proven successful in facilitating access to a regular integrated Home Education Forest School group. 

The Woodlanders groups run simultaneously alongside a selection of our Home Education groups. For more information on this group, please visit our FAQ page.
