Welcome to Forest Academy Brandon, Suffolk

Welcome to Forest Academy in Brandon, Suffolk. Whether you are a returning member of our school community or a new face joining us for the first time, we are excited to have you as part of our family.

Forest Academy is more than just a school; it's a place where we nurture a love for learning, instill strong values, and provide a safe, supportive environment for all our children. Learning for life underpins all that we do and we strive to provide the best possible education and care for each child who walks through our doors. 

Our Ethos, Values, and Attitudes

At the heart of our school is a sense of community, where everyone is cared for, listened to, and respected. We aim to cultivate a fair sense of justice and equip our children with the skills and attitudes they need to become valued citizens of the future. We believe that by fostering a positive atmosphere and building strong relationships, we can create an environment where children thrive both academically and personally.

Our Aims

To bring our mission to life, we have established five clear aims based on the Building Learning Power dispositions:

Ready to Learn: We want our children to approach learning with confidence and positivity, ensuring they are emotionally and physically prepared.

Resourceful: We encourage our children to be proactive in their learning, asking insightful questions and employing various strategies to acquire knowledge.

Reflective: Curiosity is key to growth, and we strive to instill this quality in our children. We also teach them to learn from their mistakes and celebrate their progress.

Resilient: Perseverance is a fundamental life skill. We support our children in facing challenges head-on and staying engaged in their learning even when the going gets tough.

Reciprocal: Teamwork is an essential aspect of education. Our children are taught to collaborate, help one another, and work together effectively.
