School Business Manager Anna Thurman says:

"At Westbury Leigh Primary School, we want to inspire every child to be the best version of themselves in everything they do. Forest School provides a great learning environment for this and we are lucky to have this provision on site led by our very talented Forest School leader, Mrs Murray.

Ms Isherwood, Assistant Head Teacher adds:

"Forest School has such a positive impact on children’s confidence, resilience and wellbeing. It’s a fabulous and creative environment to be able to offer all our pupils after lockdown.

"The children were able to have fun, take risks, and use their freedom to solve problems for themselves. Being outside in our amazing grounds helps to reduce feelings of anxiety and gives everyone a chance to flourish in a natural environment. Being in our wooded area amongst the trees enables every child to reconnect with nature."

Katie, Y6 pupil sums it up:

"Forest School is an amazing place to be free and creative. You can forget about school work and just run wild!"
