School Developments

School Progress Plan

2023 – 2024 Priorities

Throughout the summer term, Forest Park Preparatory School undertook a series of activities to evaluate its provision. As part of this, the school reached out to those closest to the school – pupils, staff and parents – to understand areas of strength and particular points for development.

The findings have been incorporated into a School Progress Plan.

Over the next two years, we shall be focusing on three key areas which are aligned with our mission and will support us in bringing our vision to life.

The three key areas are:

Theme 1

Ignite Wonder

To foster wonder and interest in the world, which sets pupils up for a lifetime of adventurous curiosity.

Theme 2

Chromebook Evolution

To enhance our pupils’ technological experiences and prepare them for the digital world.

Theme 3

Healthy Bodies and Healthy Minds

To provide a holistic sporting experience that promotes healthy bodies and healthy minds, fostering the physical, social, and emotional development of every child.
