Westover Primary School

Forest School

We are lucky to have great outside spaces at school, including a small, wooded area.  Our children enjoy a Forest School experience with their class on a regular basis. 


Forest School offers a unique approach to teaching, using the outdoors as a learning environment. Its main aim is to promote self-confidence, motivation and awareness, as well as good communication, social and emotional skills. The positivity felt by the children at Forest School in turn improves children's learning attitude within the classroom setting. In addition, technical skills (often using tools) and a greater understanding of our natural environment are developed as well.
