OPEN AFTERNOON - Tuesday 12 November 2019, 1.30pm
Vision and Aims
Welcome to Wood End Infant & Pre-School! I am very proud of our school and have seen it go from strength to strength in the six years that I have been here.
Wood End is a small and nurturing school; as our motto says: ‘Nurturing acorns into sturdy oaks.’ We endeavour to nurture your children ready for the next stage in their education.
Our school is special in many ways. Our Foundation Stage class ensures that children reach a Good Level of Development, which has been consistently above the National Average for the past 4 years. Through child-initiated activities and planning in the moment, we capture the interests of the children and meet individual needs.
Reading and phonics is taught through Read Write Inc. Our highly skilled practitioners ensure children grasp the concept of reading and develop a love of reading from an early age. Our phonics screening check results at the end of Year 1 have been above the National Average for the past four years – in 2017 we were in the top 6% of schools nationally. Each year we are awarded the Ruth Miskin Training Accreditation badge to acknowledge our strength in teaching children to read, write and spell with passion and fidelity.
