At Forest View children come first. We believe that it is important to value each individual within the school community and to celebrate their achievements. We have high expectations of ourselves and others. We value the gift of learning and recognise that we all have the right to succeed.

We value the role of the school within the community and work in partnership with parents/carers and the wider community to ensure that children are able to:

- enjoy school and want to learn;
- become independent learners;
- attain the highest academic standards;
- develop skills and knowledge needed to develop individual talents, be they creative, scientific, technological, spiritual, sporting or social;
- understand their own feelings and begin to make life decisions that reflect their increasing confidence;
- understand how to lead a safe and healthy life both in mind and body; and
- understand that everyone has equal rights to access opportunities.

Forest View believes that children should take risks when they learn and play. We offer children stimulating, challenging environments for exploring and developing their learning and play in a range of different ways. This includes 'learning beyond the classroom'. Children who attend Forest View often take part in learning activities in the local woods and town, as well as around the school site. Learning activities may include den building, cooking over open fires and nature hunts to name but a few.

Forest View's curriculum has been built around the school's local community and meets the requirements of the national curriculum. Whole school topics provide children with purposeful learning activities which are designed to excite and engage children in their learning. The school upholds the British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those from different beliefs and faiths through all that it does and teaches children to respect each other.

The school also promotes and awards our own values which are: honesty, tolerance, cooperation, kindness, invention, courage and determination. By promoting these key values the school wants every child to leave us fully prepared for their next stage in education and to have the skills to tackle any problem that they may face through life.

Forest View is a forward thinking school which is building towards becoming an outstanding institution. We innovate where can to make sure that the education that we provide for our children is engaging and suited to their individual needs.
