I qualified as a Level 3 Forest School Practitioner whilst studying for a postgraduate certificate in co-ordinating Special Educational Needs in Primary schools and being the headteacher of a small, village primary school. Needless to say, I came to realise that the invaluable benefit of Forest School and reward of supporting young people and their families with additional needs was far more satisfying than being a headteacher.
After gaining experience in a special school with children with complex needs and working with permanently excluded children in a pupil referral unit I decided to be brave and set up my own business.
Now I have the delight of working with so many different people in the amazing outdoors with Be Wild Forest School as well as being a SENCo in two schools and a mum to two beautiful children.
