Children at Forestdale have the opportunity to use of a range of social skills in different contexts, for example working, cooperating and socialising with other pupils, including those from different religious, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds.  These are not only reinforced by our school values but also that of the acceptance and engagement with the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
