Welcome from the Principal

“Building the future by guiding the present”

As your Principal, it gives me great pleasure, on behalf of the governors, staff and students to welcome you to Forest Approach Academy.

We pride ourselves on our broad and balanced curriculum where teaching of life and social skills are our strength as well as inspiring high academic achievement. Our aim is for our students to achieve their full potential in order to equip them to become as independent as possible and ready for their next journey in life.

“The very welcoming environment is calm and purposeful, and pupils show delight as they participate in activities” Ofsted report 19-20 June 2018

Our vision continues to maintain that our students have a voice regarding their own learning journeys. We have already implemented lots of changes by adapting our broad curriculum to ensure the student’s learning is fun and motivating offering lots of different opportunities.

We recognize each child is unique. Through our individual approach to teaching and learning and with small classes, children settle quickly and easily at any age of entry. We nurture each child’s unique talents and skills so that they can achieve their full potential within a stimulating, challenging and dynamic learning environment.

At Forest Approach Academy, we offer extra-curricular activities, provisions and therapies including: breakfast and afterschool clubs, bikeability, rebound, animal assisted and music therapy as well as gardening and singing clubs.

Our staff are dedicated and work seamlessly together. They work hard to ensure the students are happy, safe and are able to access all opportunities across the school. This was reflected in our recent Ofsted report where 100 percent was achieved from our staff questionnaire.

We look forward to meeting you.

Mary Bickmore
