Detailed Information:
The Countryside Foundation for Education (CFE) is an educational charity established in 1986 to promote an understanding of the countryside as a living, working environment and is a member of the Council for Environmental Education (CEE). The CFE produce a range of balanced teaching materials for schools that inform and encourage debate about the countryside. The Lychford File is a primary resource pack for 7-11 year olds and is now in use in over 3,000 primary schools throughout the country. A Case for the Countryside is the secondary resource pack for pupils aged 11-14 years and considers the management of five different farms and estates in contrasting areas of England, Scotland and Wales with interests ranging from aggregate extraction to deer stalking. The resource packs are developed by teams of writers including people from a range of countryside occupations, practising teachers and educational professionals experienced in the design of curriculum resources. Whilst the CFE does sell packs directly to parents, teachers and governors they prefer to provide them during one of their pre or in-service teacher training sessions. The courses are normally run on working farms and estates where teachers can learn about the countryside and how to use it as a resource for learning. These have proved to be tremendously popular with teachers as they are shown how to use the resource packs to help address their current curriculum priorities.
