Forestdale Team

It is our terrific team of teachers and teaching assistants who are responsible on a daily basis for the academic progress and pastoral care of the children.  Teachers are supported in this work by the Headship Team, Teaching Assistants, Office Team, Lunchtime Supervisors, our caretaker and cleaning staff. 

 All teaching staff have responsibilities beyond their own class, which usually involve the whole school in some way e.g. subject responsibilities. During the school day, teachers sometimes take other classes or groups of children for a variety of subjects, enabling all children to experience tuition and relationships with a number of adults. Parents are very welcome to come and help us in our work, but as a general rule we encourage parents not to work in their own child's class.

Each day is extremely busy, and it can be difficult for staff to talk with parents about children's progress at a moment's notice. Although we recognise that concerns do arise, it is best to make an appointment with your child's teacher through your child's  contact book or the school office.
