Welcome to Woodville School


Headteacher's welcome to Woodville Primary School.


A very warm welcome to Woodville Primary School’s website. It gives me great pleasure and pride introduce myself to you as the Head Teacher of Woodville Primary School. I am absolutely thrilled to be in this position and to ensure that the school goes from strength to strength.

As a school, there is so much to be proud of staff work positively with the support of the children, parents/carers and governors to continuously move the school forward. We believe that every child has the ability to do amazing things – together we can make this potential a reality.

‘The school’s curriculum provides memorable experiences and rich opportunities for all learners and drive the culture of the school’ NAHT Aspire Peer Review July 2018

At Woodville we are passionate about working with children and believe in providing children with exciting, creative and meaningful experiences, which builds their enthusiasm for learning, their self-esteem and helps them grow and develop as an individual. We also believe that a child’s social and emotional wellbeing is paramount. Pupils are therefore encouraged to have a positive outlook in life and develop a ‘can do’ attitude in all aspects of their learning. We strongly believe achievement and enjoyment go hand in hand, and with this in mind I hope you will support our high expectations in all areas across the school.

Our exceptional SATS results in Key Stage 1 and 2 for Reading, Writing and Maths exceed the national average and pupils have a very positive attitude to learning. Our Reception pupils also achieve highly and make excellent progress from their starting points when they enter the school.

Our School Vision includes the words, ‘To be a caring school’- as we want all of our pupils, staff and visitors to display a caring attitude towards one another. We also encourage our pupils to try their best in everything they do as it is important to promote a positive Growth Mindset throughout the school.

‘Subject skills, knowledge and understanding are creatively taught so learners understand what good and exemplary progress looks like’ NAHT Aspire peer review July 2018

Our pupils have the opportunities to develop their confidence, independence and resilience through a range of inspiring learning opportunities including, creative and logical problem solving, computing, researching curriculum Topics and developing skills in a range of sports. Our school environment allows pupils to use the natural outside environment for learning and enrichment activities for example, Forest Schools. Pupil voice is also important and we have our Head and Deputy head pupils, our School Councillors and our Eco Warriors to work together to share their ideas.

‘Expectations of behaviour and relationships reflect the values of the school and drive the language, attitudes and behaviours of the learners and the wider school community’ NAHT Aspire Peer Review July 2018

At Woodville Primary School you will notice the exemplary learning behaviour of our pupils and the friendliness and commitment of our staff. We believe that your children should be safe and happy at school and look forward to each school day. Please browse through or website to find out more about our ‘Outstanding School.’
