From 2014-2016 the Board of Conservators has secured funding from Natural England to deliver FREE educational visits for school-aged children. If you would like a guided education session, or for us to plan your lesson around your classroom's curriculum needs, then please contact us.
Here, you can download our education toolkit. This toolkit endeavours to equip you, the teacher or community group leader, with all the information that you need to be able to bring young people to Cleeve Common and to help them and you to enjoy and learn from everything the Common has to offer. The toolkit aims to highlight Cleeve Common as a fun and safe learning environment where children can experience learning in the outdoors and gain an increased understanding of farming and rural life, conservation, history and geology.
The toolkit is a large file to download, so it has been divided into sections:
The Common is open to the public for your enjoyment, but please remember that it is a Site of Special Scientific Interest and an important part of our natural heritage. It is open access land (Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000), and as such you are permitted to bring groups to the Common independently, however, we ask that you please always let us know when you will be visiting. Our ranger often likes to welcome groups, and will make sure he is available during your visit to assist if an emergency situation occurred. We can also let you know if there are other public events being run which may clash with your visit, or if there are electric fences and stock roaming in the areas you plan to visit, so please keep in touch with us.
