Pembroke Park Primary School are our first Recognised Forest School Provider in Wiltshire.
Sarah Ward (Level 3 Pembroke Park Forest School Leader) reflects on what recognition means to the school and the application process:
“We are very proud of our Recognised Forest School status. It has proved to be a popular asset amongst potential parents and their children, especially those who start school in Reception. The rigorous application process ensures good practice, so we know we are fulfilling the required criteria outlined by the Forest School Association and providing the best experiences for the children possible. The support given during application was first class and responses were both quick and helpful. Well worth the effort.”
The map of the UK’s FSA Recognised Forest School Providers is growing. If your organisation can demonstrate they are providing (or introducing) Forest School programmes in line with the 6 principles of Forest School, then we would love to hear from you. www.forestschoolassociation.org/find-a-forest-school-provider
