Our Vision

Welcome to Far Forest Lea Memorial CE Primary School


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.


Our Vision...


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.
