Junior Park Rangers

    A free nature club for Primary schools!

    Is your school looking for a new challenge that can help the environment? Junior Park Rangers is a free, inclusive, non-competitive, simple and fun club that you could become a part of!

    JPR is a team activity for up to 10 students in Years 4 to 6 for Milton Keynes schools exclusively. Each school must nominate an adult staff member to be “JPR Coordinator” for your team – we cannot accept registration from individuals, so please check that your school are willing to support this programme before signing up.

    A Coordinator’s role is very flexible and doesn’t take up much time. We look for a commitment of approximately 2-3 hours a month, and you can run your monthly sessions at lunch or after school. If you are a teacher or teaching assistant, you can find out more about the role of a school coordinator.

    The Parks Trust provide all the resources required to get you started, including some free goodies and links to resources. We also provide free practical workshops for students to attend. Please note, these weekend workshops are independent and so teachers and parents are not required to attend, but you are very welcome to come if you want to!  

    Are you ready to sign up for adventure? Register your interest to become a JPR Coordinator for your school, or contact us for more information at jpr@theparkstrust.com. If you want to talk direct, please call 01908 233600 and ask to speak to a member of the Outdoor Learning Team.
