School Ethos

“What have you done today to make you feel proud?”  Heather Small 2000

Our school motto is ‘Proud’, and it is not just a word in Woodlea, it is a sentiment that is engrained into the ethos of our school. Therefore, I am proud to have the opportunity to serve as Headteacher of our fabulous school and work with all sections of the school community to ensure that Woodlea remains a very special place in which to learn and grow.

At Woodlea we aim to:

  • Provide opportunities for all children to achieve their full potential
  • provide a broad, balanced, exciting curriculum within a caring and welcoming environment
  • foster a ‘have a go’ attitude, where children feel safe to try new things
  • celebrate children’s successes
  • create a school ethos that is firmly based on mutual trust, respect and tolerance
  • encourage caring and thoughtful attitudes
  • nurture confidence, resilience and independence
  • empower pupils to make informed decisions and choices
