Forest School

Inset/Staff Development


Staff Inset Days

At Basnett Street Nursery School, all staff have received Forest School training in order to feel confident and capable of delivering and being a part of Forest School sessions.


This is a special day for all the teaching and support staff to discover for themselves the opportunities for learning in a woodland setting, face personal and team challenges and have fun!  Staff have found this to be an inspiring process and are now thoroughly enjoying being a part of the Forest School sessions.


Basnett Street Nursery School are committed to providing high quality professional training with ongoing support for staff to ensure they continously develop their Forest School learning programme in the natural outdoor environment. 


Inset/Training days offer opportunities to develop activities supporting learning and development in the natural environment for the whole school and to understand how the Forest School experience can benefit the staff and key workers and how best to support the sessions.


It is also a chance to light a fire and then cook lunch on it!


Inset and development days are tailored to meet the specific needs of staff and to focus on priority areas.  Lots of activities are performed and adapted for different stages of learning with fun team building challenges.


Unique and quality training ensures staff continously promote the Forest School ethos and are kept up-to-date on Forest School Education.


These sessions can explore games and activities that staff can use straight away with groups.


Also the risks and benefits of outdoor learning and considerations on managing groups safely outdoors. Training opportunities offer staff members to understanding how to work safely in the outdoors.


And also to learn about the woodland environment and it's wildlife.


Ongoing support and training significantly increases forest school and personal development, learning and understanding especially the planning of child-initiated activities.


Basnett Street Forest School provides opportunities for new outdoor experiences with Forest School on our door-step!
