Information for secondary schools, APIs and special schools
How can my school sign up for the Nature Friendly Schools evaluation?
The Education Officer will explain the Nature Friendly Schools programme and evaluation. If you wish to be involved, you will sign a Memorandum of Understanding, indicating that your school is willing to participate in the programme and the evaluation. You will nominate a member of staff as the NFS School Lead to lead the programme and facilitate the evaluation in your school.
What will the evaluation involve?
A NatCen researcher will arrange:
- An observation of an NFS outdoor learning activity;
- A focus group with 5-7 pupils;
- Two interviews with the NFS School Lead.
Additionally, staff participating the programme will be invited to complete a short online survey.
