The children are at the centre of everything that we do. As a learning community, we believe that all children are of equal importance and they deserve equal access to a broad, balanced curriculum in a stimulating learning environment.  This promotes active learning, lively enquiring minds and the ability to question. We believe that high self-esteem, self-confidence and happiness are central to our success as we continuously challenge ourselves to achieve the highest standards.



Wood End School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
