Getting Background: At Oakwood we wanted to see what opportunities were out there for our pupils who have a wide range of special needs. We applied for the Forest School Awards using Lady Dixon Park and were fortunate enough to get the funding.

Special Forest School setting: We used Lady Dixon Park for our Forest School training. The Park is brilliant for doing Forest School sessions, offering many varied and exciting habitats for our kids to explore in. We hope to develop our own Forest School site in the grounds of Oakwood in the near future
