A word from the headmaster
We are a diverse, vibrant learning community where expectations and standards are high and children are helped to achieve their best. This is a busy, friendly school, with lots going on. Staff, children, governors and the local community work really hard to provide a secure, nurturing environment where children can become confident, independent learners and succeed in all areas of school life.
Woodridge is a Values Based Education School and our Core Values are: RESPONSIBILITY, RESPECT, HONESTY and KINDNESS. It is expected that the children, the staff and parents support our values.
This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you are looking for. We welcome visits to the school. Please contact the school directly to join us for one of our regular school tours or with any queries you may have.
