In September 2019, The Forest Academy had the opportunity to join the Junior Warden Scheme. 12 Year 5 pupils were chosen to take part in this exciting new venture, supported by Miss Galley and Mr Hallam.
The Junior Warden Scheme is funded by grants made available by our Ward Alliances and Councillors and is supported by South Yorkshire Police and all the Emergency Services.
The scheme is deliberately designed to be lots of fun and interesting whilst still teaching the group some important life skills.
The schemes have been running successfuly for the past 11 years in the Dodworth area but now include Worsbrough, Kingstone and Central Wards.
The aims are character building, forming team spirit, building self-confidence, providing a better insight in how a community works; giving a brief opportunity to enjoy being part of that community and learn life-saving skills and safety advice along the way.
