I am delighted to introduce myself as the Head Teacher of Forest View Junior School! We have a wonderful team all dedicated to bringing out the best in our children. Our motto is ‘Learn, Live and Laugh together’ derived by two children from our school and I think this encapsulates our core purpose. Forest View is a school with the community at its heart; a place where children leave as ‘lifelong learners,’ equipped with the essential skills to be successful in the future. 

Deemed as a ‘Good School’ by OFSTED in our last inspection, we are driven by our Mission Statement. Our mission is:

  • To provide a warm and welcoming environment in which all children feel safe, cared for and have equal access to all aspects of school life
  • To encourage independence, the confidence to take risks and make informed decisions
  • To provide a curriculum that is challenging, creative and promotes pupils’ spiritual, moral and cultural awareness
  • That every child who walks out of the door at the end of Year 6 has achieved the best they can and are equipped with the essential life skills to be successful

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website, and visitors are most welcome to our school.

Kind regards,

Mr G Worthington

Head Teacher 

IMPORTANT MESSAGE:  School will be open as normal on Friday 30 January.  If there are any changes we will text parents, notify Radio Nottingham and Radio Mansfield and will update our website. Thank you.
