Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens. The school community have worked hard this year to update our visions and values.
Our Mission Statement
Woodgate Primary school and Nursery aims to inspire, challenge and nurture the individuality of all our pupils. We aim to prepare pupils for all stages of their education as well as equip them with high aspirations for their future lifelong learning.
Woodgate Primary School and Nursery aims to be an excellent school and nursery serving the local community. We have high learning and behaviour expectations and aim to ensure every child will realise their full potential through their participation in a broad and balance curriculum. Every child will have a voice: they will be able to articulate their thinking and opinions, and will be provided with stimulating learning opportunities to develop this.
As a school and nursery grow, we will maintain our nurturing environment supporting the well-being of the whole school community. We will encourage challenge and resilience and build confident, ambitious, independent and happy learners. Through our work with Rights Respecting Schools we embrace diversity and respect as an integral part of our community.
Our success will be achieved through collaborative effort including; working with external partners, staff, governors, parents and the children themselves within a culture of honesty, openness and trust.
Taking Pride in everything you do
Promoting Fundamental British Values
In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in England are subject to its law. To support and further develop our understanding we will be working towards becoming a Rights Respecting School.
The Key Values are:
