Our Vision and Values
'Hand in Hand with God we love, learn and achieve'
JTMAT: 'We believe in the power of education to improve lives – and the world’
We inspire happy, confident, enthusiastic, high achieving lifelong learners, within a loving Christian community and through the Fruits of the Spirit.
Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
1 John 4:12 (NIV)
The History of The Forest Family
Following All Saints' Primary and Needwood Primary joining together as a hard Federation pupils, staff, parents and Governors worked together to identify and agree a set of core principals under The Forest Federation (now the Forest Family) slogan ‘Hand in hand we love, learn and achieve’. From this we designed a statement that encompasses our vision:
‘Our Federation inspires confident, enthusiastic, high achieving, lifelong learners within a loving Christian community.’
The ‘Fruits of the Spirit’ from Galatians 5:22 are rooted in the Christian values that we expect from all members of our community.
We were absolutely delighted to join the John Taylor Multi-Academy Trust in 2018.
