I am very pleased to be able to welcome you to our school.
Wootton Primary School has been at the heart of the local community since 1872 when the village first received a grant to help educate the local children. Since then the school has expanded greatly and now has room for 420 children. The school houses 14 classrooms, two per year group. We have several shared areas outside the classrooms that are used for a variety of activities such as craft or small group work. We have a large hall, a dance studio, a library and other working areas to enhance learning opportunities. We are fortunate enough to be set in spacious grounds. The staff believe that the outside environment is as important as the classrooms themselves to help children learn, and constantly strive to ensure that the physical environment is as safe and stimulating as possible.
Our most recent OFSTED inspection (March 2010) described the school as good with outstanding features. Consequently, this allowed the school to convert to an academy in October 2012. Children follow the Foundation Stage curriculum for their first year in school. They then progress into key stage one and then key stage two where they follow a school designed curriculum. The school has very good relationships with the local community and actively welcomes many visitors to school to enhance the education of our children. Relationships with parents are highly valued as we believe that children thrive best when school and home works in partnership. The active School Association helps raise funds for all those essential extras. The Academy Trust (the governors) have overall responsibility for the school. All who work at Wootton Primary School aim to achieve a happy, friendly and caring environment where all children are valued equally and their achievements are celebrated. Simply put, we all want to be the best we can be!
Lorraine Schofield, Headteacher
Our aim is for all of us to be the best that we can possibly be!
For children, this means that the adults in the school will strive to support every individual to attain the very best in terms of educational, personal and social development. We want children to enjoy school, the feel inspired to learn, to feel safe and to take a full part in the life of the school community. We need to prepare children for the next stage of their education, and to become good citizens.
A clear set of values underpins our school ethos, together with clear behaviour expectations. We consulted staff, governors and the children and from the views of all of our stakeholder groups, we decided on a core value of Respect, with six underpinning values. We promote each value in turn every year, focusing on Respect and one other value per term:
Caring, Courage & Honesty
We believe that good relationships between home and school are crucial if a child is going to flourish and achieve to the best of their ability. Consequently, we welcome and appreciate parents' support and involvement in the life of the school, and in all aspects of learning.
