We continue to follow government guidance on Covid-19 safety and social distancing and continue to implement all measures required of Covid-19 settings.
Our team has been working hard over the past few months to adapt our training and develop policies and procedures that allow us to safely run our Forest School training. We are a Covid-secure venue and have been implementing a number of additional safety measures, including training bubbles, social distancing and outdoors-only training. The full list of additional safety measures we're taking is available in our Covid-19 policy, per below.

Social distancing & Training bubbles
We are following social distancing rules and the latest government guidance for training providers.
In practice this means that we are implementing a number of key changes to the way in which our training usually run. This includes (but is not limited to) the following:
Ongoing use of hand-sanitizing gel throughout the day
Enhanced cleaning procedures throughout the day
Much smaller training bubbles
Consistent training bubbles throughout the course
Time almost exclusively spent outside (except for toilet use)
Strict social distancing measures throughout the day
Adapted training activities to avoid contact and sharing of resources
Compulsory collection of NHS Test and Trace data, kept for 21 days
