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

Oh what a night! What a turn out!  The majority of the school enjoyed an end of half term celebration in the form of a Halloween Disco.  The children turned out in fantastic costumes and created a great atmosphere in the school hall.

With the support of our parents group and other parent helpers, we were all fed and watered and danced the late afternoon away.  A big thank you to Mrs Walker and the team, for their cooking, serving and emergency sweet supplies.


The end of this half term also saw the children taking part in a wide range of activities linked to Black History.  Mrs McClymont helped us to organise another reflective, thought provoking yet enjoyable day. More details and photos to follow.

Taiko Time

Class Ireland presented Japanese War Drumming as part of their class assembly.  A very big thank you to Notts Performing Arts for the loan of their drums.
