Our Ethos and Values

About Us

The children's learning should be challenging, useful and enjoyable and enable each child to reach his or her full potential. Children should be equipped with the basic tools of learning, with numeracy and literacy given high priority. These will be taught through a wide range of experiences. The children should develop confidence, self-reliance and the ability to co-operate with other children as well as adults. At Woolpit School we aim to create a caring and safe environment in which everyone is valued and respected.
