The children, staff and governors of Far Forest Lea Memorial CE Primary School welcome you to our happy school. We are a Church of England School that believes in providing a richness of opportunities, where every child’s talents can be nurtured and celebrated.
At Far Forest Lea Memorial CE Primary School, we nurture and celebrate each individual’s unique qualities and as a child of God. Our vision is to provide a curriculum that feeds our children mentally, physically and emotionally so that they flourish throughout their lives.
"Feed my lambs", John 21: 15-17
Our school motto; 'Learn, Celebrate, Nurture' is at the heart of everything we do at Far Forest.
Nurturing is shown through showing compassion and kindness towards other people. We support children and adults mental health and well-being. We value all children as individuals, regardless of their backgrounds, helping them to flourish and fulfill their unique God-given potential. All children are loved and valued for who they are.
Learning is shown through our inspiring curriculum design, encouraging all children to take responsibility for their own learning. Children are given the opportunity to drive their learning, developing creativity and independence. We seek to educate the whole child, pursuing academic excellence. We help children to discover their own love for learning, focusing on developing important life skills.
Celebrating is shown through encouraging children to share their achievements. Children are proud of all they achieve, are confident in their own abilities and are keen to celebrate this. Everyone’s achievements, in all forms, are valued and recognised.
We want each child to:
feel safe and secure
develop confidence in everything they do
have empathy and an understanding of people and the world around them
be independent learners
be full of aspiration
We achieve this through creating a climate where pupils are nurtured and are surrounded by an inspiring curriculum. We ensure we support the needs of all their in providing support, guidance which excites the learner’s curiosity.
Everyone is part of driving the learning and ambition which ensures all pupils succeed both in school and in life afterwards.
Working in partnership with our families has created a school community which is aspirational and has a strong family ethos in which everyone is valued and respected.
We look forward to welcoming your child to our school and becoming partners in your child’s exciting learning journey.
