‘Striving to ensure every pupil achieves success and contributes positively to society, by providing them with imaginative, nurturing and motivating learning opportunities.’
The Forum Centre strives to create a close working partnership between increasingly confident pupils, supportive parents and carers, a dedicated staff and a committed management committee.
We work in close partnership with parents and encourage open lines of communication with them, aiming to build positive relationships. We pride ourselves in being ready to listen and provide support when needed. Alongside this, we work closely with other agencies supporting our students and their families, in order to facilitate a successful return to mainstream education or a designated, appropriate provision.
At The Forum Centre we aim to ensure that every pupil is provided with the opportunity to achieve their very best. We seek to fulfil each individual’s potential and to prepare our students to meet their role as responsible, confident members of society in an ever-changing world.
We encourage our pupils to celebrate their successes and develop a love of learning, creativity, independence, self-discipline and respect for themselves, others, their close environment and the wider world. We promote learning to work and play well with others, to share, to observe rules made for the common good and to make their own positive choices.
We offer outstanding welfare and guidance through our strong pastoral system. This system provides inspiration, opportunity and a secure, healthy environment, within which pupils thrive. Our pupils feel a strong sense of identity and belonging, secure in the knowledge that they are well understood and supported. We recognise and acknowledge our pupil’s talents, supporting, working alongside and encouraging them to recognise their own strengths. We encourage resilience in our pupils so that they are able to tackle any task.
Our vision is to engage each pupil with learning and we make every effort to make this a reality for each pupil that attends our centre. We want our pupils to be excited by the curriculum; to progress in their learning; overcome their barriers to learning and progress to become responsible members of each community they belong to. We do our best to ensure that pupils make good progress during their time here, achieving the highest standards they can. In this way, they hold in their sights a successful future.
KINDNESS and RESPECT: towards self, others and the environment.
