Primary Academy


Welcome to Woodside Primary Academy, where our priority is the well-being and progress of every child. We have worked hard to develop an atmosphere of trust, happiness and achievement here at the school, to ensure that your child feels cared for and supported on their educational journey.  Ofsted recognise the excellent work in the areas above and have graded us as Outstanding in all areas of education (July 2016).

We strive to meet the needs of individual children and support them in becoming enthusiastic and successful learners, ambitious and creative dreamers, and ethical and responsible members of society.  With this in mind, we have the ‘Seven Life Values’ which we believe are essential for our children to be successful, not only while they are with us, but also after they leave Woodside.  Our values are: Respect, Responsibility, Independence, Kindness, Confidence, Honesty and Determination.

Woodside have also adopted the '7 Habits of Highly Effective People' as introduced by the author Stephen Covey.  These Seven habits support personal leadership and the adoption of them has cultimated in our pupils successfully writing their own reports and leading their own parents evening.

Our dedicated teaching and support staff work together to create a stimulating learning environment for our pupils, encouraging them to become active participants in their own, unique learning journeys.  Our imaginative ‘themed classrooms’ allow pupils to write, read and investigate in real context environments.  Fostering creativity and independent learning, these engaging and fun environments help children learn and make sure that curriculum topics resonate, and that children can build a holistic understanding of the world around them while making their way through the curriculum.  

Thank you for taking the time to have a look at our website.  We warmly invite you to visit us here at Woodside, where I’d be more than happy to show you around so you can see the great qualities that set our school apart.


Best wishes,


Shane Tewes
