Vision And Aims


We work at Woolley Wood for one reason; to make a difference to the lives of our children.


Our vision is to be a school that looks at each child and decides “what can we provide that will make a difference to their life?”  We have a drive to improve each of our children’s lives.  We assess what is important for each child and work hard to achieve that.


A child’s progress is not always easy to see on a day to day basis but what we do for them matters.  Would the progress have happened if we hadn’t worked, planned and pushed for it?  Everything we do, every intervention, every touch, every smile, every word makes a difference.  This makes a difference to them, their families and society as a whole.


Many people go through life wondering what the purpose of what they do is.  We don’t have to wonder.


Every time we look at one of our children we see the answer.  Helping them to reach their potential, teaching them, looking for new ways to make a difference in their lives is the purpose of what we do.


In order to make this difference we aim to: 

Promote individuality

Ensure that all have high esteem - respecting themselves, others and the environment

Develop communication skills

Develop motivation and a spirit of curiosity

Enable pupils to play and work with others and develop relationships

Use ICT to control the environment and to enrich their leisure time

Enable children to make choices and have autonomy

Ensure that pupils are healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, and make a positive contribution and achieve economic wellbeing
