"Be the rainbow in someone else’s cloud"

 

School Vision Statement

Our school is a family – we care, we share, we laugh and we learn in the light of God. Through our Christian values we instill in our children an understanding of their wider world, where we encourage children to be resilient, and independent, ambitious lifelong learners. Our Christian Values are: Hope, Forgiveness, Service, Compassion, Peace and Wisdom.

“Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on earth”.

Genesis 9:16

 

Curriculum Intent - our approach

Woodlands curriculum has been designed to ensure each and every child can 'live life in all its fullness' by offering stimulating and inspiring learning experiences with Christian values at the heart.

It is bespoke to the needs of all pupils, not only by focusing on appropriate subject specific knowledge, skills and understanding as set out in the National Curriculum, but also by developing individual and collaborative learning experiences, a sense of responsibility and challenges that take them beyond the classroom (Enterprise driver).

We are a small village school with a constantly evolving curriculum which responds to the needs of learners and their interests by enhancing learning experiences and raising awareness from the local area to national and global arenas. Thus, we will develop outward looking pupils who are able to engage in learning about themselves and have an understanding of the wider world and its complex cultures.
