Wootton Primary School has been at the heart of the local community since 1872 when the village first received a grant to help educate the local children. Since then the school has expanded greatly and now has room for 420 children.
The school houses 14 classrooms, two per year group. We have several shared areas outside the classrooms that are used for a variety of activities such as craft or small group work. We have a large hall, a dance studio, a library and other working areas to enhance learning opportunities.
We are fortunate enough to be set in spacious grounds. The staff believe that the outside environment is as important as the classrooms themselves to help children learn, and constantly strive to ensure that the physical environment is as safe and stimulating as possible.
Our most recent OFSTED inspection (October 2014) assessed our school as a good school. The school converted to an academy in October 2012.
Children follow the Foundation Stage curriculum for their first year in school. They then progress into key stage one and then key stage two where they follow a school designed curriculum.
The school has very good relationships with the local community and actively welcomes many visitors to school to enhance the education of our children. Relationships with parents are highly valued as we believe that children thrive best when school and home works in partnership.
The active School Association helps raise funds for all those essential extras. The Academy Trust (the governors) have overall responsibility for the school.
All who work at Wootton Primary School aim to achieve a happy, friendly and caring environment where all children are valued equally and their achievements are celebrated.
Simply put, we all want to be the best we can be!
