Woodgrange Infant School was built in the 1970s. It is a single storey building which has been adapted and developed over time. We are lucky to have a large playground and a wooded area at our school.
Our School has 300 places for children aged between 3 and 7 years. There are 3 classes of 30 in each year group.
Our Nursery class provides 30 part-time places for children from the age of 3.
Children transfer to the infant classes each September.
In the September following their seventh birthday all children transfer to Godwin Junior School unless parents request otherwise.
To the rear of school we have a community building called The WEB which provides a range of activities for children and their families. Chestnuts Nursery run a breakfast and after school club for children aged 5-11 from this facility.
This building includes Chestnuts Nursery, a private provider with places for 3-5 year olds who can provide “wraparound” care for young children.
Learning is exciting and challenging.
Children are happy, safe and feel valued and listened to.
Everyone is kind, friendly and respectful to each other.
We provide a stimulating and caring environment where children thrive both as individuals and active members of the school and wider community.
Everyone strives to do their best and we celebrate our achievements.
We aim for all children to
- develop lively, enquiring minds, the ability to reason and question and become independent learners
- develop a love of learning and acquire a good foundation of skills and knowledge for future learning
- achieve highly
- behave well and apply themselves purposefully to all tasks
- explore their own creativity and appreciate the work of others
- develop both an understanding of and a respect for other races, religions and cultures
- have a sense of self-respect and self-esteem, as well as the ability to co-operate and work with others
We involve families as partners in the education of their children.
Our parents tell us Woodgrange
- is friendly
- is welcoming
- is supportive
- provides good care and a good education
At Woodgrange we endeavour to meet the needs of everyone in our school. We believe in the inherent equality of all individuals, irrespective of physical or mental ability, gender or race, and reflect these both in the learning opportunities we offer the children and in the general manner in which all those who come into contact with our school are treated.
We wholeheartedly endorse the Boroughs Equal Opportunities policy.
The school is opposed to any form of racism and racist behaviour. All children have the right to the best possible education. This means recognising the many cultural backgrounds of the children and reflecting them in a positive way throughout the curriculum.
