14 – 19 Learning Pathways & Forest School Report Published

Forest School has been shown to a highly effective and engaging way of delivering much of the Core of Learning within 14-19 Learning Pathways, according to a recent report by Denbighshire Forest School.

The Report is based on 16 Forest School Learning Pathways Link Courses, delivered between 2006-2009, including seven year-long programmes and involving over 100 KS4 pupils from 4 high schools and 2 special schools.

In addition to developing Key Skills, 57 pupils gained a Forest School OCN level 1, 10 gained an OCN Entry level, and 35 gained their John Muir Discovery Award. Two programmes were tailored specifically around ASDAN challenges.

The Forest School programmes attracted high levels of support from families, Educational Social Workers and other key Local Authority officers, and additional benefits included opportunities for work experience.
