Forest School

Here at Weston, we have developed a Forest School ethos. Our aims for Forest School are:

* To nurture self-esteem.

* To develop healthier bodies.

* To enhance children's communication skills.

* To provide real life opportunities and create independent learners.

* To develop team working skills, resilience and risk taking.

* To equip children with love and respect for the outdoors.


To help us with our journey we were successful in a Tesco Groundwork scheme and we have just been awarded a grant of £8,000. The money from this grant helped us create a Forest School environment as well as a sensory and mini-beast area. All staff have had Forest School training and the children benefit from this approach in nurturing their resilience, problem solving, collaborative skills and Secrets of Success attitude.
