The natural environment at The Willows is a perfect setting to promote holistic development, as the programme provides opportunities for learners to develop all aspects as an individual; for them to develop as a whole person.  The skills children acquire at The Willows support them in preparation for life. 

Rebecca Dodman manages the programmes on offer at The Willows. 

Her ambition is to promote the love of learning through personalised/outdoor experiences; leading by example and inspiring children to fulfil their aspirations.  Rebecca has empathy and energy to drive improvement and implement initiatives; for individuals to succeed, feel valued and to make a difference.  She is passionate in providing high quality education for all.

As a former leader in education, primary school teacher and qualified Level 3 Forest School Leader Rebecca has the experience and skills to plan a wide range of different activities, including child-led, open ended tasks; which as Dr Maria Montessori suggests will allow learners to use their own abilities to develop all aspects at their own pace.
