Woodloes is a two-form entry primary school that opened in September 2009 following the amalgamation of the Junior and Infant Schools that had served the local community for many years. The new construction and refurbishment of some of the existing accommodation provides fantastic facilities that also includes Saplings Pre-School, Oscar (out of hours childcare) and a Community Centre.
The extensive facilities that we have here provide the children with a safe, secure and stimulating environment in which to learn. Not only do we have wonderful classrooms and fantastic play facilities (we have our own castle with a slide) we have a Forest School area which enables the children to explore and use their imaginations in a safe outdoor woodland space which they love!
Our pre-school- Saplings- was commended in our recent Ofsted inspection and they work closely with our Reception classes as part of our Early Years Foundation Stage. This is an exciting, dynamic setting that offers the very best possible start for children as they enter primary education. If you have children approaching school age then please make an appointment to come and see us in action!
Key Stage 1 (ages 5-7) build on the very successful start made in the early years. The children develop their skills in reading, writing and maths at an accelerated rate and learn how to apply these skills to solve problems in science and foundation subjects. They become confident, capable learners in Key Stage 1 and they share their love for learning in assemblies which our parents enjoy attending. We work hard to develop close links with home to support the children's learning with termly drop-in sessions to allow parents to see for themselves their children's work and progress.
In Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11) the children become more independent in their learning and really broaden their skills and experiences. Year 3 and 4 is the middle phase and there is a huge breadth and balance in their curriculum entitlement.Year 5 and 6 is the upper phase and the pace and complexity of the children's learning is sophisticated and extensive. We have the very highest expectations of our children as learners at Woodloes and everyone works to the best of their ability to achieve their potential.
Ofsted were very complimentary about our school and the high standards that have been achieved and a link to their most recent report (March 2019) is available from the HOME page of this website. The school has achieved and maintains the very highest standards and we are always determined to ensure that every child has the opportunity and support to achieve their very best.
One of the main characteristics of our school is not just what we do but how we do it. Woodloes is a fabulously caring environment and we go about our business with a sense of fun, excitement and pride in our achievements. We work hard to build effective partnerships with others and believe strongly that we should share ideas and resources to build a stronger more effective education system to improve the life chances for every child.
We believe in sharing ideas, expertise and resources with others and had the opportunity to work closely with Warwickshire County Council and developers to successfully open the new Heathcote Primary School. In 2015 we chose to join the Community Academies Trust to provide further opportunities for improvement by working in partnership with outstanding providers.
If you are a new parent, thinking about sending your children to our school then we would encourage you to talk to existing parents and families about their experiences with us or make an appointment to visit the school. Our older children like to show prospective parents around their school which they do with an enthusiasm and honesty that visitors find helpful and reassuring.
If you have any questions about our philosophy or vision or any aspects of our provision then please make contact with the school or arrange to come and see us in action.
