A project of this nature is inevitably dependent on the support and goodwill of a range of people.
The project was facilitated for the National Forest Teaching School by Mr Paul Lovern from the St Mary’s (Colton) and Richard Crosse Church of England Federation.
The Project Team was led by Diane Swift, formerly from Keele University and now Director of the Keele and North Staffordshire Primary SCITT
A large number of teachers contributed to the project – over 75 schools took part in some way. Within this group, a number of colleagues attended additional meetings and were able to shape the project further. These included:
Jenny Bower-Gormley, The de Ferrers Academy, Burton on Trent
Sally Churchill, Saxon Hill Community School, Lichfield
Alison Evans, All Saints Primary School, Rangemore
Claire Murfin, Thomas Russell Junior School, Barton Under Needwood
Catherine Newstead, The St Mary’s (Colton) and Richard Crosse (CofE) Primary Federation.
Ashley Roe, The Mosley Academy, Anslow, Burton on Trent
Emily Starkie, John Taylor High School, Barton Under Needwood.
The project was hosted by and worked with the Education and Events teams at the National Memorial Arboretum. The Arboretum was both the location that facilitated the project events and became a project resource.
