We are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School. We currently hold Silver level accreditation, and are working towards Gold. We support UNICEF’s Convention of the Rights of the child and encourage our children to reflect on their own rights, and those of others in both a local and global context.
Woodside is a 3 form entry Primary School. This means that in each of our year groups; Reception to Year 6, there are 3 classes. We also have a thriving Nursery for children from 2 years old.
Our children are encouraged to be independent and resilient, to challenge themselves and persevere to overcome problems.
We strive to be an outstanding school at the heart of the local community in which every child is empowered to have self-belief and to aspire to achieve her/his highest potential.
We aim to…
- Create a welcoming and caring atmosphere, placing safeguarding at the forefront of all we do.
- Expect the very best from all through developing an enjoyment, and commitment to twenty-first century lifelong learning.
- Develop critical thinking and the ability to transfer skills (Learning Powers – LP).
- Foster self-esteem, self-autonomy and self-discipline.
- Provide inspirational opportunities to acquire, develop, and apply a broad range of knowledge, understanding and skills.

- Develop a respect for the spiritual, moral, social and cultural values and views of others.
- Encourage and recognise the importance of pursuing a healthy lifestyle and developing wellbeing.
