West Moors Middle School
We’re very fortunate to have extensive grounds which incorporate a large sports field, cross country track, woodland, pond and play areas. Recently, we developed an outdoor gym area, investing in outdoor cardio and strengthening gym equipment which children enjoy using at break and lunch times.
We have also developed our woodland area to create a Forest School site to support outdoor learning opportunities. Our Forest School is multi-sensory and can help improve concentration and the motivation to learn.
Forest Schools are evidenced to help children gain more independence and self-confidence, reduce anxiety, build resilience, and improve their communication skills.
Led by a qualified teacher, trained in outdoor learning delivery, we are incredibly proud to be able to offer this extracurricular provision, supporting our children’s emotional health and wellbeing.
