Meet the Forest School Leader

Alison Galbraith

My Name is Alison Galbraith and I am currently completing my Level 3 Forest School practitioner training. To gain this qualification I went on a week’s training course, I now have 6 months to complete my portfolio before returning for assessment.

Forest school is an inspirational process that includes all learners in a regular and planned opportunity to develop their self-esteem and confidence through a hands- on learning experience in an open environment. It has a learner-centred approach so even though the sessions will be planned we have the ability to adapt this in order to the interest of the children and the seasons so that we will get the full potential from the sessions.

Over the coming weeks I will be developing an area in the garden for the children to access in order to take part in my Forest school sessions. As well as having these sessions in our garden we will be exploring the local parks and wildlife reserves.

If you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact me.
