The idea for a ‘once a year’ conference came from the last meeting of the formerly named ‘Gloucestershire Forest School Network’. Members agreed that attending meetings at schools/nurseries was beneficial, however settings were often unable to release staff to attend. For this reason we decided that the group would no longer continue with this model.
You are, as you can imagine, welcome to approach a setting to visit and observe their Forest School. I cannot emphasise the benefits of taking the time to see how Forest School runs in a different setting. The ideas that I have ‘magpied’ from observation visits are infinite!
As we want the day to reflect the needs of the community, we have created a Forest School Group to discuss the workshop themes. We invite you to take part in the discussions and to influence the bookings.
The group can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/InspiredForestSchoolConference or if you are not on Facebook then please email us your thoughts.
Organised by the Inspired Forest School Leaders network
formerly The Gloucestershire Forest School Network
We have set a price of £95 for the day and we will use this to cover the cost of the day. As we are a not-for-profit organisation we will use any profit made from the day to subsidise tickets for the 2023 meeting. For this reason, a reduced price of £75 will be charged to those who attended last year. You will be sent an email containing a promotional code.
To ensure that the day is run by the members of Inspired Fores School Leaders (the new name for the Gloucestershire Forest School Network), we have started a Facebook group to discuss things:

There will be FIVE WORKSHOPS throughout the day and we are just finalising who will run them.
More information about the day will be released as we confirm bookings. Thank you for your continued support!
