A Warm Welcome to Woodcote Primary School
“…a happy school with a positive ethos.”
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.
Tim Rome, Executive Headteacher
Woodcote Primary is situated on the borders of Coulsdon and Purley.
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.
