Head Teacher Statement

A Message from the Head Teacher

Woodcocks’ Well CE Primary School is a small, friendly, Church school which aims to bring the very best education and pastoral care to the children and families it serves. Happy children are central to our policy and practice.

Our strong and dedicated team of teachers and teaching assistants provide a safe and stimulating environment in which children enjoy learning and aspire to achieve and succeed. Building on the children’s interests and promoting a love for learning both inside and outside the classroom, our curriculum is designed to be purposeful and meaningful.

Through topic work, we inspire and engage children’s young creative minds. Our belief is that intelligence can be developed and that our ‘growth mindset’ approach to teaching and learning, shapes learners to become enthusiastic and hard-working, taking charge over their own success.

As a church school, we enjoy close links with St. Luke’s Church. Through collective worship, we are guided by the ‘Fruits of the Spirit’ values which are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control and forgiveness.

Together, we embrace these values in a climate where every child matters. Our regular family and community events create a culture which values parental involvement and extends an invitation to ‘get involved’. Our rural position in Mow Cop in no way limits the children’s experience of life in surrounding areas. The children are taught a selection of languages as they move through the Primary years, learning about different cultures.

Through our ‘Evacuee Experience’, which is extended to schools within the County and neighboring Counties, our pupils meet many children from visiting schools. In addition, we regularly share work with a school in Japan, learning about each other and similarities and differences in the two contrasting settings.

Woodcocks’ Well is a very unique and popular school with much to offer you and your family. Simply give us a ring to arrange a visit. We look forward to meeting you.

– Mrs Julie Massen BEd MEd NPQH - Head Teacher
