Woodlands Junior opened in September 1964, and caters for boys and girls, aged 7-11 years of age. At present, there are approximately 380 children on roll. We have twelve classrooms, an ICT Suite, a library, a hall with fixed apparatus, a wildlife area and a pond. Woodlands’ is set in pleasant grounds with a large field and an adventure play area.
Class teachers are responsible for the children’s welfare and delivery of the curriculum. Work is planned jointly, in Year Teams of three teaching staff with close liaison, communication and support from our teaching assistant team. During planning, Year Teams share the preparation of work, drawing on different experiences, knowledge and expertise to ensure work is relevant and well matched to meet the needs of the children. In this way, we are able to utilise the strengths of a large staff team and enhance the quality of learning and teaching here at Woodlands.
