Headteacher's Welcome

It is a pleasure to welcome you to Forest Park School, a Hampshire local authority maintained special school. We provide education for children and young people aged 2-19 years with severe, profound and complex learning difficulties. In addition, the majority of our pupils have co-occurring needs including Autism, Down Syndrome and physical disabilities.

Forest Park is split across two sites, one mile apart. We have a Primary School in Ringwood Road, Totton catering for around 100 children and a Secondary School in Commercial Road Totton, catering for around 40 young people with the most profound and complex learning difficulties.

At Forest Park we are committed to providing a highly personalised curriculum and stimulating learning environment, which starts with the individual needs of each child and young person. We seek to prepare every member of our school community for the next significant phase in their lives, whatever that might be. In addition, we are dedicated to ensuring that our pupils enjoy school, are happy, confident and proud of themselves and their achievements.

In school we are supported by and work in collaboration with, a range of professionals including School Nurses, Speech and Language therapists, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists.

I hope you enjoy your journey around our website and look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful school at some point in the future.

Pupil Premium Strategy Report

Forest Park School Pupil Premium Strategy 2021-22


At Forest Park School we use our pupil premium allocation in a variety of ways to support the individuals maximise their learning and improve their outcomes.


All of the pupils at Forest Park have special educational needs, with varying levels of complexity, so we use our allocation to help the individual pupils by potentially buying them resources to improve their outcomes, offering them experiences that they might not get otherwise, bringing in specialists to support in a particular way and constantly seeking improvements to their educational experience, sometimes in small ways but with big impact.

We measure the impact of the expenditure through regular review of pupil data and questioning by our link Governor. The pupils are observed using the equipment and participating in activities and these are recorded through photographs and teacher comments in pupil learning journeys.


Reviews take place termly.
