Our Missions, Aims and Ethos

Be the best that we can be!

School Aims

Forest School works to provide a broad, balanced curriculum that meets the needs of each and every pupil.

We want our pupils to be ‘The best they can be’ and become:

  • Confident Individuals
  • Successful Learners
  • Responsible Citizens
  • Effective Contributors

We want our children to achieve the outcomes set out by the Children’s and Young Peoples Plan to:

  • Be safe and nurtured
  • Be healthy and active
  • Achieve individual and economic potential
  • Be included and respected

We have identified four aspects that we feel are especially important:

  • Learning Together: Innovative and engaging learning
  • Keeping Healthy: Healthy Body… Healthy Mind…
  • Creativity: Seeing the world in different ways
  • Environmental Awareness: Looking after our school – looking after our world

This is achieved by:
✔ stimulating a love of lifelong learning by inspiring pupils, encouraging curiosity and interest,
and developing an enquiring mind
✔ developing pupils’ independence and positive attitudes to life
✔ fostering responsibility and respect for self, others and the environment, both in the local
community and in the wider world
✔ creating a happy, welcoming and stimulating environment which is safe, supportive and
accessible for all, where everyone is valued and treated with respect
✔ promoting mutually beneficial links between the school and the wider community
✔ providing a curriculum for all pupils which is relevant, inclusive, motivating, and which offers
✔ creating opportunities for success, which promote the development of the whole pupil,
offering learning opportunities at a physical, creative, social, spiritual, moral and emotional
✔ encouraging each other to ‘be the best we can be’ in all aspects of our work and behaviour.
