What IS the Forest Fusion Package?
Forest School Leader led programme
  • A flexible package that supports settings & schools to set up a nature based curriculum.
  • A team building experience.
  • The programme aims to facilitate practitioners in maximising child-led learning opportunities in natural surroundings.
  • Forest Fusion enables practitioners & teachers to experience a forest school session from their own perspective to feel the impact upon their own well-being & confidence, to experience risk & challenge, to develop  positive relationships within the team & beyond & to develop a connection & love for nature that transforms practice & teaching.
  • Informs teams how to incorporate nature based learning in meaningful contexts relevant to the National curriculum in creative & innovative style.
  • An experience similar to that a child would experience in a forest school programme – Practitioners should develop a sense of well-being, confidence, freedom, feel motivated to learn, share experiences etc
