Woodhall Community Primary School welcomes children from
families living close to the school and beyond. It offers large, light
classrooms and a warm and inviting learning environment. The school
caters for children from 3 to 11 years of age, with up to 60 children in
each main school year group. Our Early Years Foundation Stage classrooms
for our youngest children are spacious and fun and offer a separate
outside area. We are able to
accommodate up to 39 Nursery children over
morning and afternoon sessions. These children learn and play
alongside their reception peers making the transition to full time
school in reception as smooth as possible.
Our older children have a range of facilities such as an ICT
suite, hall and studio as well as a large area to play and learn
outside. The children enjoy
using the laptops and i pads in their classrooms and we offer swimming
and instrument tuition in key stage 2. Our class names are all woodland
trees and our ‘houses’ are named after local halls. The children are
awarded achievement points for excellence that build to individual and
team awards. We enjoy
sharing individual successes in Friday’s Achievement Assembly and we
award a cup weekly to the class with the best attendance.
We are able to offer a 50-place Breakfast Club at a very
reasonable rate and there are a range of well-supported after school
clubs that change termly. We
value visits out and visitors in and believe these add to an engaging
and exciting curriculum.
Wherever possible, we try and draw on local experience and expertise and
we are also keen to get involved in local community events and
We aim to help every child achieve their full potential and are
keen to remove any barriers that might prevent this.
By the time the children leave us, we hope they are confident and
articulate individuals that are also able to work well together.
They will have acquired the skills necessary to help them move on
enthusiastically and successfully to the next stage of their education
to be successful members of their school and wider communities.
With best wishes from
Mrs Lesley Farrow Headteacher Helen Arbon
