KS3 intervention Thursday and Fridays Woodland Sessions



CEP is in a prime position to offer schools the opportunity to enhance their students learning experience through the use of CEP’s Holly Hayes Woodland site. Evidence from multiple sources confirm that engagement and learning within the natural environment has multiple benefits from educational attainment to positive mental and physical wellbeing.


Students will attend Holly Hayes and use this as their classroom for the day. CEP has built a toilet block in the woodlands and has access to hot water, power and covered areas.


The focus will be on developing a set of transferable skills which the student can identify and use within the school environment as they develop. Students will be set challenges and tasks within the woodland where teamwork, target setting, communication and work skills will be developed. By working closely with support within school, we are encouraging students and staff to identify positive forward movement and build positive relationships which will support growth and academic development.


Students will have the option to work across several ASDAN specifications around both individual rights and responsibilities (PSHE) and practical skills within bush craft, carpentry, art, horticulture and woodland management. All courses will have embedded functional personal and life skills.


Courses can be booked from 1 term to a full academic year (1 day a week) depending on the needs of the child, their supporters and management teams.
