Forest School

We are pleased to announce that we now have our own Forest School leader with a Level 3 Forest Schools qualification! Jenny used to work as a teacher and now works at Westwards, co-ordinating our outdoor provision and Forest School sessions.

We have just acquired a minibus so that we can travel to an area of woodland owned by Loughborough University, which we now use for Forest School sessions.

Forest School is a fabulous opportunity for children to explore the outdoor environment, develop a connection with nature and to improve a whole range of skills from personal, social and emotional skills, to physical development and communication skills. It is an ideal way for children to learn in the early years and gives them an ideal preparation for school.
