Level 3 Forest School Leader

Congratulations to Mrs Harvey who has achieved her Level 3 Forest School Leader award.

Mrs Harvey is now in her fifth year working in our Forest School and, having already achieved Level 2, is delighted to be a qualified Leader responsible for facilitating groups in a learner-centred way and managing our Forest School site sustainably.

Throughout the course which requires the commitment of 180 hours of work and a large portfolio of work, Mrs Harvey admits it has made her a bit of a nightmare to go on a walk with:

“I love being out in nature and I’ve learnt so much that I now can’t stop spotting things to point out along a walk! For me, the best thing about Forest School is seeing the creativity of children and enabling them to follow their interest without sticking to a structure.”
