Having a good site to run forest school is key to its success, but it can be a challenge turning a corner of a school playing field into somewhere fit for purpose. Come along to the this CPD session to gain some tips and ideas for creating and maintaining a space suitable to run forest schools. It will include simple ideas to transform your space including tree planting schemes, design ideas, ways to manage usage and tips for sourcing low cost equipment and materials.
This after school session will be delivered by forest school practitioners Annie Berrington and Ruth McBain is aimed at school staff (teachers, teaching assistants and support staff) as well as practitioners, community workers and anyone who who works with children and young people who would like more ideas for making best use of their space.
This is part of a series of sessions from Get Out More CIC to help people get started with forest school. The sessions are targeted at Bradford schools in the Forest Pathways programme, but the invitation is extended to Bradford Forest School Network and anyone with an interest in the subject.
This event has been organised by Get Out More CIC as part of its Forest Pathways programme for schools in Bradford, a government-funded programme to help more children and young people benefit from access to nature. The project is being delivered as part of the Children and Nature Programme supported by the Department for the Environment Food and Rural Affairs and managed by Natural England.
