Welcome to Woodthorpe Community Primary School

A message from our Headteacher...

Dear parents, carers and families,

Thank you for visiting Woodthorpe Community Primary School's website. We hope you like it!

At Woodthorpe we aim to ensure that your children have the best possible education that equips them with the skills, knowledge, qualities and values that will follow them through life. We also aim to work closely with all members of our community to help children recognise the importance of collaboration and forming positive relationships.

I look forward to working in close partnership with you to ensure that all children at Woodthorpe are given every opportunity to enjoy learning, to thrive and to achieve their full potential in a happy, stimulating, vibrant community school.

Our website aims to provide parents, carers and families at Woodthorpe with up to date news, forthcoming events and regular snapshots of children's exciting learning experiences.

We would welcome any positive feedback or suggestions and ideas to develop our website further.

Thank you and best wishes,

Dave Smith


...and our Chair of Governors.

On behalf of the Governing Body of Woodthorpe Community Primary School thank you for taking a moment to get to know our role a little more.

The Governing Body is here to agree the school's strategic direction and make sure school succeeds in helping all its pupils to get the most from their time with us.

The whole governing body is extremely proud of our recent OFSTED results, please take a moment to look at them under the Key Information Section of the website. The whole team at Woodthorpe already have plans in place to take these to even higher heights in the near future. We are always here to listen to your thoughts from your children's experiences at school so please pass them on to us and be sure they will be listened to.

One of my aims in the body is to make sure that all aspects of the school are challenged to make sure that the school exceeds your expectations on an academic basis but also that we adhere to basic principles that all families strive to embed in their children; trust, politeness and a friendly supportive behaviour should all be the norm for our pupils.

Should you need to contact me please either leave your details at reception or alternatively contact me through the closed Woodthorpe parents group on Facebook. Even though I have complete faith in the school team, no team or body can ever hope to be better if it doesn't welcome the opinions of others.

Grant Walker

Chair of Governors
