Who Are We?
Shona first discovered Forest School when an email landed in her inbox
for a Forest School Leaders Course. She was instantly inspired and signed
up to the course at Moggerhanger Park run by Bridgewater College in
Somerset in November 2012 and hasnt looked back since. Now armed
with her Level 3 BTEC Advanced Forest School Leaders Award she is
raring to go.
Shona currently works as a teaching assistant in one of the local lower
schools and works across the year groups from Early Years including
nursery to Key Stage 2. As part of her role she delivers Forest School
Session on a weekly basis. She has been at the school since 2007.
Previous to this she worked as a full time childminder for 6 years.
Shona is CRB/DBS checked and holds a Paediatric First Aid Certificate,
NVQ Level 3 in Child Care and Education and is up to date with her
Safeguarding Children Training.
We are fully insured to run forest school sessions and have the
appropriate public liability in place.
All staff have been CRB/DBS cleared
CRB/DBS clearance is good practice however volunteers who have not
had a check should still be able to volunteer and should be supervised
Licence to Operate
We have been issued a licence by Bedford Borough Council to run Forest
School sessions at Berry Wood.
