Operating Under the Direction of 1st Fressingfield Scout Group
We have been nominated in the Suffolk County Council Raising the Bar awards – for our partnership working in delivering scouting at Yoxford and Peasenhall School. Thank you for support.
In 2016, the Times Education Supplement (TES) wrote an article which suggested that children who joined Scouts and Guides – and benefited from outdoors experiences and independent learning as a result – had better mental health in adulthood. The below article continues in that theme, stating that where scouting is embedded in school curriculum pupils reap longer term benefits.
Matthew meets is our new podcast series interviewing people in and around Norfolk Scouts about topics that are of interest to our county, Scouting or young people in general. In the first episode Matthew meets Andrew Aalders-Dunthorne to discuss school based Scouting.
Scouting provides a second family to lots of young people
