Headteacher’s Message
Thank you for your interest in joining Woodlands Primary School. This is an excellent opportunity to join a great school and to play a key role in shaping the provision of education for our children.

At Woodlands Primary School we care about success and about each other. We have high expectations inside the classroom and outside the classroom in all that we do. As a community school, we take our role seriously in providing the best quality care and education for children from age 2 to 11.

We focus on the important things that children need. We do not focus solely on outcomes and test results, but on giving children the right attitudes and knowledge for a successful life. To demonstrate this, we have our “4 Is” which we want all children to become: intelligent talkers, insatiable readers, impeccably behaved and inclusive citizens. Everything we do should focus on these.

Many of our children need the care and attention of our school to be like a family. So, we have our family values which are:

RESPECT: resilience, empathy, self-respect, punctuality, enthusiasm, character and talk.

All of us need to show these values at all times, our staff, children and community. This means we develop in our knowledge and our behaviour.

Our staff team are central to our success. They drive and accelerate the provision we offer to our community and we want the very best people to join us. We have a very strong staff team who are all focused on our children, making sure that every day is the best it can be for all of them.

If you feel you have the skills, drive and ambition to help support our aims, then please do read on.
