Our Aims


"At Woodthorpe we aim to ensure that your children have the best possible education that equips them with the skills, knowledge, qualities and values that will follow them through life.

We also aim to work closely with all members of our community to help children recognise the importance of collaboration and forming positive relationships."

Weekly Stars 19 October 2018

Macmillan Coffee Morning

We've had the Macmillan coffee morning for the children and raised an amazing £115.19! which is a fantastic achievement - well done!

We would like to thank all the parents in Y5LM/SC who donated buns and cakes to such a worthwhile cause and to the children for being so passionate about a worthy cause. A massive THANK YOU!

Attendance Matters!

We are very proud of our school, our staff and above all our children! Others however, including OFSTED, would judge us unfavourably with an attendance of 94%.

The National Average Attendance
for Primary Schools is 96%.

2% below national may not sound a lot but it equates to 6% of our children having approximately 9 days off each per year. Please help us to address this problem by ensuring your child attends every possible day!


At school we have the means to support families in numerous ways and have sign posted many to other organisations which can offer support and advice.

See our Attendance Matters letter for details of the steps we are taking to improve attendance at Woodthorpe.

Also see our Holiday Absence - Attendance Matters letter for more information of how holiday absence affects a child's education.
