A Warm Welcome to Woodcote Primary School
“…a happy school with a positive ethos.”

Woodcote Primary School is judged Outstanding by Ofsted 2015

I am happy to report that Woodcote Primary School has been rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted inspectors who visited the school at the end of April.

I am absolutely delighted with the outcome of this inspection. Woodcote is, and always has been, a unique learning environment where staff, children and parents work together in their pursuit of excellence, not just academically but as a community, where each child feels safe, cared-for and supported. It is wonderful to have our achievements officially recognised. I extend my thanks to all the staff, who are a pleasure to work with, and to parents who trust us with the important task of educating their most precious children and who support them on their learning journey. We are all now looking forward to continuing our success.

Welcome to Woodcote Primary School. We are conscious of the trust you place in us and look forward to working with you to achieve our shared aspirations for your child. 

Woodcote is a happy school with a positive ethos. We take pride in our diverse cultural community and believe that all children can be encouraged to do their best in a positive, hardworking, learning environment. We value each child as an individual and work hard to foster resilience, adaptability, thoughtfulness, respect, enquiry, co-operation, communication and morality.

We have an experienced and enthusiastic team of staff who are committed to your child achieving the highest standards of education and behaviour. We are fortunate to be a well-resourced school set in a wonderfully green setting with plenty of space for the children to play and learn.

Everyone in our school community is looking forward to a happy and productive association with you, your child and your family.

Our aim is to encourage children to work to the best of their abilities, not just in the essential basic skills, but in all aspects of their learning.  We enrich learning by providing plenty of opportunity for broadening children’s experiences in all areas of the curriculum and through the links made by our international curriculum. As well as encouraging intellectual growth, we will work with you to develop the whole child.

By working together as parents and staff, we will ensure your child has the best possible opportunity to reach their personal best.

Woodcote Primary SchoolWoodcote Primary School is a school for boys and girls from 3 to 11 years of age, maintained by the London Borough of Croydon, with a maximum of 90 children admitted to each Year Group.

Woodcote Primary is situated on the borders of Coulsdon and Purley, easily accessible by road with ample on-street parking for parents to safely drop-off their children.

Woodcote Primary is extremely well resourced, set in a wonderful green setting with educational facilities that offer unique learning opportunities.

Woodcote classrooms are bright, attractive and well equipped with an excellent range of reading books, science and technology equipment, construction toys and mathematical apparatus.

Woodcote teachers have high expectations of children’s learning. A balance of teaching styles is used across all year groups, including whole class, group and individual work. Teachers differentiate work, based on every child’s ability, to ensure that every child has the opportunity to work to his or her personal best. Where necessary, children are supported by teaching and learning assistants to enhance their learning or assist with learning difficulties. Children who have a particular gift or talent are catered for both within the classroom and the wider school community.
