Vision and Aims

VISION STATEMENT

The children are at the center of everything that we do. As a learning community, we believe that all children are of equal importance and they deserve equal access to a broad, balanced curriculum in a stimulating learning environment.  This promotes active learning, lively enquiring minds and the ability to question. We believe that high self-esteem, self-confidence and happiness are central to our success as we continuously challenge ourselves to achieve the highest standards.

SAFEGUARDING STATEMENT

Wood End School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the well-being of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
