Arrange a Visit
Woodlands Primary School is a school that has to been seen to be believed!
Visitors to our school are regularly blown away by how warm, welcoming, productive, and hard-working we are.
We are committed to bringing the community through the doors of our school to let them see and feel what Woodlands School is like.
We hold a regular open morning once every half-term. There is no need to book, please just turn up.
Here are the upcoming dates for 2021-22 academic year:
Tuesday 26th April 10am
Tuesday 14th June 10am
If these dates are not suitable, then please get in touch to arrange an alternative date. We will do our best to accommodate you.
At the Woodlands Primary School open morning you can expect to be greeted by a senior member of staff who will take you on a guided tour of the school, focussing on the areas you are interested in. We will aim to show you our Early Years area as a priority, including our 2 and 3-year-old nurseries. You will also be able to see some of our Key Stage 1 and 2 classes in action, our fantastic outdoor space, and our common areas, such as dining room and hall.
You will be able to see the children working and enjoying their learning, talk to our team of teachers and support staff, as well as seeing the learning environment and the vast improvements we've made to the school.
Should you have specific requirements, or would like to ensure you are able to talk to someone in a particular department, such as Special Educational Needs, please drop us an email in advance to let us know, and we'll try to make sure we can accommodate your needs.
What our families say
I say to everyone how amazing my girls' new headteacher is and how much she's done for our school. She's an absolute credit to our community.
N Root, parent
I am so glad my daughter started this school when she did. I have to be honest, the reputation Valley Park had in 2019 made me avoid putting it on her admissions form, even though it was our catchment school. After a lot of thought I changed my mind at the last minute. It was the best decision for both her and me. She is excelling and loving school.
Mrs Johnstone has turned the school around in such a short time, we can't wait to be part of the Woodlands community and see the school grow into something wonderful. Thank you to the staff for making the school what it is today!
J Bennett, parent
Woodlands is a primary school where children are supported emotionally, socially and academically.
They have a fantastic team of teachers and support staff, led by a fabulous headteacher that all want the very best for each and every child.
Parents are encouraged to share their thoughts and feelings and the school ensures they work with families to see that all the children are happy.
K Simpson, parent
Woodlands offers a calming environment, enthusiastic teaching and constructive support.
I particularly love the “back to nature” approach and forest school.
My son is really happy here and he’s continually progressing, not just academically but socially and emotionally too.
