Across the UK many schools are rediscovering the importance of play and some are developing their playgrounds to create natural play spaces. Many however have access to a wonderful, but unused, woodland playground right on their doorstep.
We wanted to find out how woodlands in or adjacent to schools could be made accessible for regular play. We've visited schools that have been doing this for years and worked with others that have recognised the potential of their woodlands for play but who needed help to turn their aspirations into reality. This richly illustrated 16pp booklet shares what we've learned along the way and illustrates not only the range of benefits offered by woodland play but also how schools have managed the practical issues that might otherwise have prevented them from enjoying them.
