Do you share our vision to “Sparkle and promote a love of learning”? (Ofsted 2017)

We are a dynamic, large inner city school who pride ourselves on being unique.  Our delightful children thrive in our nurturing environment. They are always eager to learn and show exemplary behaviour. Ofsted 2017 judged our pupils to be “inquisitive, kind, polite and courteous.”

We are searching for an experienced business manager to join our vibrant and dedicated team at Forest Park Primary School. Forest Park is a multicultural 2-form entry primary school, including a 52 place Nursery
