Westgate Primary School launched a £5,000 outdoor classroom to bring learning to nature.

The Learning Lodge, as named by pupils, was funded by the PTA and retired head Howard Lee.

Head Jim Cleaver said: “They love learning outside. It’s creating memorable learning experiences when you step outside the classroom.

“We’re blessed with huge grounds at Westgate. It’s part of a scheme to help maximise the school’s outdoor spaces.”

Local company Millex Construction provided the ground work for free.
