Westover Primary School

Gardening club


Miss Vickers and Mrs Atkins look after Gardening Club, in collaboration with Shaun, our Site Manager.


So far this year we have planted 70 tree 'whips' (saplings) that were donated to us by the Woodland Trust.


We work closely with our local Tree Warden, Pauline, to make sure we are looking after our new and established trees.


Following an award from Portsmouth City Council CIL Neighbourhood Funding - We have successfully purchased a greenhouse, wheelbarrow and appropriate tools for our students as well as planting bulbs around the trim trail and sowing wildflowers there.

Each class has a planter outside it for the classes to grow their own choice of plants , and each year group has a raised bed to grow herbs, fruit and vegetables.
