Vision and Values

We seek to provide a positive and healthy environment, where children feel happy, safe, and secure and enjoy and appreciate the rewards of learning.  We recognise that every child has particular abilities and aptitudes, consequently every child will have the opportunity to develop them here in our school.

Children will receive an education of excellent quality, which caters for the wide range of learning styles, where all areas of their development are individually met and celebrated.  This includes being taught the importance of a healthy lifestyle. The school will provide a stimulating learning environment, which allows children to develop fully their physical, academic and creative skills.

Every member of our school:

  • Will have a very high expectation of behaviour, so that a culture of trust, honesty, politeness and consideration is demonstrated by all.
  • Will have a sense of respect and responsibility towards themselves and to others, where they demonstrate understanding of the needs of others.

Our aim for children is to:

  • Grow into confident, independent and motivated individuals, in preparation to take their place in society in an informed, positive and active way.

  • Be encouraged to develop lively, creative and enquiring minds to nurture a life-long love of learning. 

  • Understand that working hard reaps success and that achievement is celebrated and rewarded.

  • Have an understanding and appreciation of the world and its people and have an interest in their environment, their heritage and their future.

  • Develop a sense of pride in belonging to the school and the wider community.

Woodside Values

We worked with all our stakeholders (parents, staff, pupils and governors) and created a set of our own Learning Values. As a school community, we decided to embed a culture of learning in every classroom that generates confidence and resilience in our learners.

 We all strive for Woodside pupils to be:

  • Resilient
  • Proud
  • Positive
  • Responsible
  • Inquisitive
  • Collaborative
