Windmill Hill Primary School digs in for woodland expansion

30 November 2012

One of the first school woodlands ever to be planted as part of The Mersey Forest is set to be expanded this winter, as part of plans to make the woodland even more suitable for outdoor lessons. 

Work is due to start at Windmill Hill Primary School to expand the woodland and diversify the species of trees, providing even more natural materials for outdoor crafts classes.


The woodland was originally planted in the grounds of the primary school by The Mersey Forest Team 16 years ago. The school was one of the first to adopt the Forest Schools approach to education, championed by The Mersey Forest across Merseyside, in 2009. The space is now regularly used to teach children outdoors.


The benefits of Forest School – a child-led education concept which incorporates the national curriculum – are well documented. Children learn about risk, teamwork and the local environment through a series of outdoor sessions which increase self-confidence and build emotional intelligence skills.


The work at Windmill Hill Primary School is being supported by the national Big Tree Plant campaign and The Woodland Trust.
