Mission and Vision Statement


To be able to walk into any classroom, at any time, and see and hear all children enjoying their learning, making good progress and attaining well, with adults and children on a continuous journey to improve teaching and learning. We will ensure every child can thrive, no matter what their background.



The ethos of our school reflects the values and attitudes that characterise any caring family and community. The atmosphere of the school, the quality of relationships, and the way in which the school helps to prepare our children, combine to ensure they have a fair sense of justice and the skills and attitudes to be valued citizens of the future.

At Forest Academy, we aim for our children to grow and develop in an environment where they are cared for, listened to and respected as well as being given consistent, secure and firm boundaries.


To ensure our Mission is a reality, the school has 5 clear aims which are inextricably intertwined with Physical and Mental Wellbeing and Building Learning Power:

  • Ready to learn: Children have a positive, confident attitude to learning.  They are both physically and emotionally ready to learn.
  • Resourceful: Children show initiative, asks well thought out questions and are prepared to use a variety of strategies to learn.
  • Reflective: Children are curious, able and willing to learn from their mistakes and can describe their progress
  • Resilient: Children are prepared to persevere and stay involved in their learning, even when the process is challenging.
  • Reciprocal: Children are prepared to help each other and work as a team.
