Friday 27 March - No Parent Assembly
Have a very Happy Easter!

I'd like to welcome you to the Woolpit Community Primary School website. Woolpit is a thriving village school in the heart of Suffolk. We aim to create a caring and safe community in which everyone is valued and respected. We believe that children's learning should be stimulating, challenging and enjoyable. Our new curriculum is underpinned with creativity and an emphasis on active learning. We pride ourselves on being a talented and hardworking team who are totally committed to ensuring our children leave school having reached their full potential. 

We currently have around 175 pupils in our school organised into seven classes from Reception to Year 6. 

Our website contains much information about our school - you can download our brochure and read our November  2014 Ofsted Report. The statutory information that we are required to publish, including information on our curriculum and how we spend the pupil premium, can be found here.

We welcome visits to our school - do contact me if there is anything further I can help you with.

Some children in the DragonTime ICT group used MovieMaker to produce a Virtual Tour of the school. Click the link to take a look - we think it shows what the children really value about Woolpit School.
