About Us

A mile from the city centre, Forest Fields Primary and Nursery School serves a vibrant and diverse Nottingham community. Children join the Nursery at levels exceptionally below national. Thirty per cent of our pupils are on the SEN register; ninety three per cent are from minority ethnic backgrounds; and eighty seven percent have English as their second, or even third, language. There are forty eight home languages represented in school, and during any academic year, many children enrol with no English at all. Developing literacy is clearly a challenge for the school.

Over recent years, there have been a variety of initiatives introduced to raise standards; high impact targets; focused work on accelerating progress; the early years communication, Language and Literacy programme; ‘reading recovery’; ‘Big Writing’; a revised monitoring and pupil progress programme have all made a contribution.
