Mr Hatherley, Headteacher at Forest Park said: “Everyone at Forest Park is delighted to have won the Modeshift STARS regional award. The pupils and staff worked hard to achieve the platinum level and this is the icing on the cake. For children with SEND helping them understand safe travel and looking after themselves is vital. The STARS system helps us engage them in activities that we can make relevant and fun. As Headteacher, I am very proud of everyone's achievement.”
