Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to Woodfield Academy!

It is with great pleasure that I offer you a warm welcome to the Woodfield Academy website. I hope that you find its content informative, and that you are able to share the pride we have in our pupils and our school. This is a successful academy: we work hard to ensure our pupils make excellent academic progress and we are committed to guiding their development as caring, happy and tenacious young people.

Our dynamic learning community thrives on our numerous core values, which represent key characteristics we would all want our children to embrace; everything that we do is embodied in our simple philosophy that we are working in partnership to help everyone reach their potential. This reflects our completely inclusive culture and our desire for the absolute best outcomes for the children in our care. As a middle school, with our specialist facilities and teachers, a truly exciting curriculum and a plethora of trips, excursions and visits for all year groups, we certainly hope to create many memorable experiences for our pupils along the way!

Whilst we pride ourselves on our achievements and identity, we are proud to be part of a wider, three-tier pyramid of schools, collaborating closely with our partner first schools and high school.  The quality of ‘through’ education within this structure is of a high standard and our role within this system is to ensure that our pupils gain confidence in their abilities, obtain truly transferrable skills and are thoroughly prepared for high-school when they leave us at the end of Year 8. We are very lucky to be able to care for our pupils during a key phase in their personal development and their confidence truly shines through, as a result.

Pupils at Woodfield enjoy excellent facilities and a spacious, safe, well-maintained campus; equally, we maintain consistent and demanding standards of behaviour and have high expectations of our pupils in the classroom. As a result, we are often complimented on the learning atmosphere around the academy and the polite, friendly welcome that our visitors receive. This is a rewarding place in which to learn and work and we continue to commit to high educational standards and excellent working relationships between our pupils and our highly motivated and supportive staff team.

I hope you are able to find everything that you require on our website, but please do remember that we are only a telephone call, an email, or a visit away, should you wish to learn more.

Steve Bond,

Headteacher
