Speaker Bios: 

Sarah Lawful was recently described by a colleague as being someone ‘with leaves in her hair and wood in her veins’, Sarah is an experienced Primary and Early Years teacher, Forest School trainer and lifelong lover of trees. Through her work with Oxfordshire Forest School Service, as part of the Early Years team, Sarah has supported many settings to bring the transformative, holistic approach of Forest School to their learners. Latterly she was a Programme Tutor and lead Forest School Trainer at Hill End Centre.
With Forest School Association colleagues, she wrote the nationally recognised Forest School qualifications and was instrumental in the development of the Endorsed Trainers scheme. Sarah left Hill End to set up her own social enterprise, Where The Fruit Is becoming a Director of the Forest School Association, promoting quality Forest School for all, locally, nationally and internationally.
Trained as a professional coach she now writes, speaks, trains and coaches about and in nature. She will share her passion for the Forest School pedagogy and thinking from her recent DEFRA funded ‘Paths to Resilience’ training. She believes in using learner led play in nature to develop emotional intelligence, in adults and the children they are working with.
