Headteacher's welcome

Welcome to Woodlands Primary


I am very proud to be the Headteacher at Woodlands Primary, supported by a highly skilled and dedicated team of teachers and support staff. The school is a two form entry primary with an integrated nursery and a Hearing Impaired Resource Base for South Gloucestershire.

The staff at Woodlands have high expectations of all the children, and would like them to leave school as confident, polite and independent young people, with the appropriate skills, values and learning to become successful in whatever their eventual career paths will be.  Our school is dedicated to providing the best possible education for every pupil in a stimulating and safe environment. We follow a rich curriculum based on a two yearly cycle of termly themes. In early years themes of work are created around the children’s interests. We aim to link the Humanities, Sciences and Arts subjects within these themes, following the recommendations of the National Curriculum.  To make learning exciting and engaging, we include lots of skills-based learning within our lessons and have a focus on developing a growth mind-set for learning.

We are committed to all aspects of education and development, encouraging families to work in partnership with us to realise our aim, of successfully helping each child to achieve their full potential.

We are very proud of the children who attend Woodlands and all of their achievements.
