Welcome to Woodlands Primary School. I'm Lauren Johnstone, the very proud headteacher of this fantastic school.
We are a 2-11 school with approximately 450 pupils, serving a fantastic community in the south of Sheffield. We are lucky enough to be a part of the Mercia Learning Trust who pledge to follow the following six principles:
We exist to inspire pupils to realise their full potential and to lead happy, healthy and fulfilled lives.
We have exceptionally high expectations of everyone and pursue excellence.
Relentless Focus on Learning
Helping every pupil learn successfully is the most important thing we do. We prioritise our time, energy and resources to ensure our curriculum and the environment for learning is exceptional.
We demand consistency, kindness, tolerance and respect in all relationships; and that every member of staff goes above and beyond to achieve pupil success.
We are committed to recruiting, developing and retaining them, and helping them secure a healthy work-life balance.
We believe partnership brings profound benefit to each school, and that we are stronger together.
At Woodlands Primary School, our classrooms are led by compassionate, enthusiastic, and highly skilled educators who value the development and wellbeing of each child under their supervision. We cherish and appreciate the distinctiveness of each of our students and strive to assist them in growing confidently and flourishing in their unique identity.
Our exceptional staff team has designed a knowledge-rich curriculum that is tailored to meet the needs of our Woodlands Primary School community. We are immensely proud of this curriculum as it facilitates the development of our students into articulate communicators, avid readers, and socially inclusive individuals with impeccable behaviour.
Children spend their days developing new language and exploring and engaging in new experiences through awe and wonder.
Our expert teachers meticulously plan and sequence every subject area in the curriculum, with the students' interests and needs at the heart of every decision.
This unique curriculum, coupled with our dedication to creating joyful and healthy individuals, equips Woodlands Primary School children with the knowledge, abilities, and confidence required not only to excel in their education but to flourish throughout their adult lives.
We highly recommend visiting our wonderful school. To arrange a visit, please contact our welcoming school office staff on 0114 2396464.
Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connections and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.
