Groups with Additional Needs

Our active outdoor learning sessions can be tailored to meet the needs of all ages and abilities, including SEND, EBD and SEMH. We aim to make the sessions as inclusive as possible, engaging pupils with the natural world, and developing their social and communication skills.

Our hands-on sessions take place in the great outdoors, often near animal exhibits. We recommend warm clothing and sturdy footwear!
