About Us

Welcome to the Forest Family.

All Saints:


On behalf of our Governors, staff and families, it gives me great pleasure to offer you a very warm welcome to the Forest Family consisting of Needwood Church of England Primary School and All Saints Church of England Primary School as part of the John Taylor Multi Academy Trust. Both schools are beautiful, small, rural village schools at the heart of their communities where we are dedicated to maintaining a strong family atmosphere and culture of success, within the Christian ethos.

We are very proud of our family of schools borne out of collaborative working. We believe that education should be an exciting and inspirational experience for everyone, so they develop a love of learning and sense of pride in their achievements.  We aim to make learning rich, diverse, creative and fun!  Each person within the school family and their contribution to school life are held in high regard.  It is with this in mind that we endeavour to maintain, not only high academic standards, but individual personal, social and moral achievement.  We understand the importance of mental health and have achieved the WAS 'Wellbeing award.'

I am honoured to be the Acting Executive Headteacher of such a warm, friendly and successful family of schools and hope that you enjoy exploring out website to discover more about the wonderful team, exciting work and children’s achievements.

Kind Regards,

Mrs Jodie Jones
Acting Executive Headteacher
