Welcome to Woodhall Primary School and Nursery
As Headteacher of Woodhall Primary School it is a pleasure to welcome you to our website.
Woodhall is a happy and exciting learning community which caters for children from 3 to 11 years of age. Ever evolving, our learning environment, both indoors and out, stimulates and inspires a love of learning. Our Early Years Foundation Stage classrooms are spacious, engaging and offer a separate outside classroom. In our nursery, we are able to accommodate up to 39 children over morning and afternoon sessions. Children learn and play alongside their peers in Early Years making the transition to full-time school as smooth as possible. For children in Years 1 to 6, our facilities include a large area where children can play and learn outside, including an allotment. We provide extensive opportunities to learn using ICT, including laptops and i-Pads. Swimming lessons are provided in Yr 4 and instrument tuition in Years 4 to 6.
We promote achievement to the fullest extent through a supportive atmosphere which enables children to feel confident to express their individuality, strengths and talents. Our classes are all named after woodland trees and our team ‘houses’ are named after local halls. Successes are celebrated in a variety of ways, from individual and team awards to sharing our achievements in Celebration Assemblies which take place on Fridays.
We believe that working in partnership with our children, their parents and carers, our governors and the wider community is critical to our success as a school. We reflect the diversity of our community by respecting, supporting and valuing our differences and our similarities, which we promote throughout our curriculum. Indeed, our curriculum is rich in experiences, with regular visits out, visitors in and other opportunities that sit alongside the delivery of key skills and application of knowledge. All children benefit from enhanced PE from Dellar Sports, which ensures they enjoy high quality sports provision. To ensure all children have the opportunity to enjoy academic success, we promote the concept of ‘learning without limits’. For those children who need it, we also provide tailored supported to enable them to progress with their learning.
Outside of school hours, we offer a 50-place Breakfast Club and there is a range of well-supported after-school clubs.
With our caring and dedicated staff, we are passionate that the school brings out the best in everyone resulting in excellent progress and enrichment for all our learners.
If you would like to find out more and see our school in action, please contact the school office and I would be very pleased to show you round.
