Vision and Values
We seek to provide an environment where all children feel happy, secure and where they enjoy and appreciate the rewards of learning. We recognise that every child has particular abilities and aptitudes; consequently every child has the opportunity to develop them in our school.
All children receive an education of excellent quality, where all areas of their development are individually met and celebrated. This includes being taught the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Our school provides a stimulating learning environment, which allows children to develop their physical, academic and creative skills.
We want our children to learn to be the best they can be. We want them to be Inquisitive, Resilient, Proud, Collaborative, Responsible and Positive. These are our core learning values.
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.
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:
Above all we want every single member of our Woodside community to show kindness and treat others the way they would like to be treated themselves.
