"Forest Park Primary School is such a wonderful school for supporting children learning and development of life skills. The staff are extremely dedicated to ensuring that all the children attain an expected high achievement. There is a lovely atmosphere and children are given adequate individual support such that even those who are different or have disabilities are made to feel part of the school family without feeling left out.
