Bobbing Village School

Small in numbers, large at heart.

Introducing the staff

Introducing: Miss Harwood  - Forest School Lead for Bobbing and Iwade - Level 3 Trained

Hello My name  is Miss Harwood, and I am the Forest School Lead for Iwade Community Primary School and Bobbing Village School.   I   currently  teach years 1,3 and 5 from both Bobbing and Iwade. I am sure that most of the children will  all know me already as  I    have  worked  within  the trust  with both Bobbing and Iwade Children   for the last 5 years.

I qualified as a Forest School Leader 3+ years ago and gained  my Level 3 Forest School Practitioner Qualification.   I then enjoyed setting up a new Forest School Site for Iwade and    progressing my career further by completing   the following courses:

-  A Qualification with the Therapeutic Forest  'Therapeutic Skills for Outdoor Leaders'  and a 2nd Course with them    focusing on 'Woodwork for Well being' 

- Outdoor 2 Day First Aid Qualification   (Renewed 11/2023)

-Outdoor Food Safety Qualification

-Outdoor Yoga with the Therapeutic   Forest 

Therapeutic Forest School Leaders are qualified Forest School Leaders who have received training from a multidisciplinary team on therapeutic skills in the outdoors.

As a Therapeutic Forest School Leader, I have received training and ongoing clinical support from a multidisciplinary therapy team including Clinical Psychologists, Play Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists.

We want the children to feel at ease when attending their Forest School Sessions, so please, if you have any questions, forward them on to the school office on   and one of the Forest School Team    will be happy to help.


Hello, I am Mrs Saul.  I  am  a Level 3 Trained and a Qualified Forest School Leader.   I have been qualified for around 3 years now.    I am new to Iwade and I will be starting my new role January 2024 at the beginning of term 3. I will be supporting    daily alongside Miss Harwood up at the Forest School Site  teaching children in years 1,3 and 5 from both Bobbing and Iwade.  I am very grateful to have received this opportunity and to   be able to   now    share my  love of the outdoors and ignite the children's curiosity  about the natural world.  I am looking forward to starting and helping Miss Harwood develop and progress the Forest School Area further.

A fun fact about me would be that... I have a diploma   in Circus Skills.

Hello, I am Miss Smith. I  work  within Iwade School as a 1:1  TA  mainly with children who   need that little extra support at times. I enjoy a challenge and thrive when supporting children who display challenging behaviour to support them in making  the right choices.   In  my    spare time, I  like to help the Forest School Team with  the planning, activities and ideas for the children to enjoy  during    their Forest School Sessions. I am a very creative and fun individual,  and     I enjoy  attending the Forest Sessions and  being outdoors whenever the opportunity arises.

Hello, I am Mrs Darragh.  I love nothing  more    than to wrap  up in the freezing cold and pouring rain  and take     my lovely dog for long winter walks. The muddier we get the better!   

I work with the year 3 children in Sky Community  and also with the Forest School Team on a regular basis. I have spent  many hours on the Forest School Site  with Miss Harwood so I know  how the sessions run and what the children enjoy. This  makes me a valuable member of the Forest School Team.
