First Coventry Forest School Graduates 

Date: Friday, March 07, 2008

Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and Coventry City Council are celebrating that our very first Forest School Leaders have successfully passed their qualifications


We now have our first 8 qualified leaders in St Bartholomew's C of E Primary School, Moathouse Children's Centre, Templar's Primary School, John Shelton Primary School, Flutterbies Nursery and Mosaic Nursery. There are 10 more still in training and another 7 due to start training in April. The programme of training will roll in the next academic year too.


We are all coming together at St Bartholomew's School Forest School site on the 14th of March, 3.30 - 5.30 p.m. to celebrate these fantastic achievements with tea, cake and some tree planting to brighten up the site.


The project is working to train members of staff from educational settings to become Forest School Leaders so they can then practise safely with their own schools and nurseries, using local outdoor spaces.


The level 3 training course is a substantial qualification and has takes a long time to complete - about 12 months with students attending training days and working on a portfolio. The work and effort put into these is huge.


Forest School is a unique way of building independence, self-esteem and a positive attitude towards learning in children and young people as they explore and experience the natural world for themselves.
