Beach Schools South West CIC – DEBI 2015 Member Award Finalis
Beach Schools South West is a national award winning Community Interest Company dedicated to getting children out of the classroom and onto the beach. We are dedicated to and passionate about encouraging children and young people to learn in the natural environment, which not only has astounding outcomes to their attainment in the classroom and their personal health and well-being, but also ensures that they are learning about the world around them with every session.
Beach Schools South West sessions are delivered by passionate leaders who are Archimedes trained and qualified. Every practitioner that teaches on the beach for us is passionate about nature and helping children to learn. It has been reported last summer, 81% of children in the West Country did not visit the beach and as unbelievable as it may seem, of over 1000 children that we have seen this year so far, we estimate (from data captured during our sessions) that 1 in 4 of them had their first visit this year! Beach Schools South West is providing opportunities for children to learn about the environment through their school work and educate the marine custodians of the future and we believe that it is a vital part of learning to be able to experience the marine environment in order to be able to fully appreciate it.
