Steps to Success

Posted on November 13 2015

The recent change to GMT has resulted in darker evenings and autumn has certainly arrived. The last couple of weeks have seen the children celebrate Halloween and Bonfire Night. Last weekend was full of firework displays and when talking with the children during my Head’s Tea Party on Monday, many of them had spent time peering out of their bedroom windows to get a glimpse of the colourful night sky.

Well most of them, as others spent their time watching the X Factor or Strictly Come Dancing on the television instead. I’m not a great fan of either show if I’m honest, but there is a will to succeed and desire to achieve among contestants that I can affiliate with.  There is nothing wrong with healthy competition and wanting to succeed in life.  It is certainly a mind-set we instil in the children at Forest Park.  Our aim is to provide opportunities for children to experience and ultimately succeed in.

At Forest Park, we have many successes.  I am extremely proud of the recent examination success achieved by the Year 6 children. They have once again exceeded our expectations and, through hard work and dedication, achieved some brilliant results.  The rest of the school has also achieved very pleasing results during our recent assessment week.  These new style assessment scores were communicated to parents via an information evening in school and also within a new report format.

Parents were also warmly welcomed into school to discuss their child’s progress this week during our parent consultations. The teachers are all very proud of the children at Forest Park and were keen to share the progress made so far this year.  Staff have also highlighted target areas for children to work towards.  These steps to success will help the children with their learning goals and ensure that each individual child progresses to the best of their ability.

I look forward to hearing all about future successes to come in the year ahead at Forest Park!
