Welcome to our school’s website; I hope that you enjoy looking through our pages and finding out a little bit more about our school. If you are in the area, you are more than welcome to come and have a look around so you can experience first-hand some of the exciting and creative learning that takes place at Woodcote. If you are not able to visit, then we hope that this website will give you a flavour of our school.
Our dedicated staff respect the children’s individuality and ensure that they have opportunities to develop in all areas of learning through a balanced, creative curriculum. Every term, each class leads an assembly where they share their learning with the school. We encourage parents and grandparents to come along to their child’s assembly before joining their child in their classroom to share more of their learning.
We are preparing our children for a journey of lifelong learning. We encourage confidence, curiosity and a positive attitude to learning so that we can equip the children with the right skills and qualities to help them to learn.
We are thrilled to have been awarded the Achievement for All Quality Mark status and be accredited as a Route to Resilience School. The work that has gone into achieving these awards has impacted upon all of the children across the school. By working together with families, we have given more children positive experiences of school which has helped to develop confidence and well-being, as well as ensuring that the children have made progress in all areas of their learning. Being part of these programmes has helped us to prepare the children for life with a positive attitude towards learning.
This year we have opened a Special Educational Needs Resource Hub, Cherry Blossom House, which supports children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs. More information about this resource will be added to our website this term.
Every child is special and has their own skills that should be celebrated.
This is a very exciting year for us and we will be developing the content of our website throughout the year, so please do come back and visit us regularly. You can also follow us on Twitter @woodcoteschool or visit our Facebook page ‘Woodcote Ashby’.
