Our core values are: Nurture, Resilience, Inspiration and Respect, which are at the heart of all we do.

Our intent is to ensure children leave Woolpit Primary Academy with a love of learning, as resilient individuals who are prepared for their futures.

Our nurturing approach ensures all pupils grow into well-rounded individuals with healthy minds.

Children will leave Woolpit Primary Academy as respectful members of the community; inspired to learn and motivated to achieve.


Woolpit Primary Academy is on a journey and as Headteacher, I am so proud of the work we have done so far, but even more excited about what is yet to come.  We have already made some really significant progress and every single member of staff is fully committed to making sure that Woolpit is one of the best primary schools in Suffolk so that all our pupils receive the education they deserve and leave us ready to succeed at secondary school.  We are determined that good is not enough; we are striving for excellence in all aspects of school life.
As a school we have much to be proud of.  Over the last 12 months we have transformed the quality of teaching in every classroom and continue to develop our curriculum to ensure it is inspiring to all pupils.  We have developed blueprints for teaching phonics and reading which have already had a significant impact and ensure that all pupils develop a love of reading which helps them in all other subjects and the world beyond.  The rapid improvement in phonics has resulted in an 87% pass rate for the current Year Two children, which is significantly above the national figures. We are part of the rejuvenation of the Suffolk mental health services and are funded by the CCG to work on projects to give our children the emotional resilience that they need to be successful in their lives going forward. 

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”— Dr. Seuss.

Whilst there is still much work to do, I am confident that with your support, we will succeed in our mission, and all pupils and their families will be proud of the part they play.  Information on this website is updated regularly and you can see lots of the fantastic work throughout but especially on our twitter page ‎@woolpitprimary
