Everyone’s Welcome at Woodstock is a unique and bespoke programme which encompasses the core values of RSE and PHSCE taught at our school. A half termly project develops our beliefs and values system across the school. 

In order to provide pupils, the ability to access our broad and balanced curriculum; allowing children to experience and engage in a variety of interesting and aspirational topics, Everyone’s Welcome at Woodstock is an approach that reflects, celebrates and addresses the rich, diverse local community that Woodstock serves. It ensures that our pupils are able to accept and respect differences, challenge stereotypes and be prepared for life in modern Britain. 

At the start of each half term an Everyone’s Welcome at Woodstock themed week, reinvigorates the core values of the programme and ensures that the key message is at the forefront of all we do. 

Each class produces an Everyone’s Welcome at Woodstock display at the start of a half term which reflects the theme and texts that the year group are focusing on. Pupil’s learning is also celebrated in a class folder and provides evidence of the objectives being covered.

It doesn’t matter if you find things easy or hard and it doesn’t matter where you’ve come from or what shape your family is; if you live with mum and dad, mum and step – dad, auntie, grandma or a carer or you have two mums or two dads. It doesn’t matter how unique you are or what your hopes and dreams are because EVERYONE is welcome at Woodstock.

Everyone's Welcome at Woodstock Overview



During EYFS’s ‘My body and Growing Up’ unit, children were washing dolls in the water tray to demonstrate why it is important to keep our bodies clean. They sang songs to help them understand and value what their bodies can do, as well as taking part in a writing activity where they had to write what healthy foods they like to eat.

During Year 1’s Relationships, Living and Growing’ unit, the children were having great fun learning about how to keep themselves clean. They used glitter to show how germs can be passed on easily, from one person to another, if they didn’t keep their hands clean.

During Year 4’s ‘Relationships, Living and Growing and Mangaing Change’ units, the children discussed ideas of what helps them to deal with difficult emotions, as well as thinking of ideas that are unhelpful. They then read a book called ‘Rainy Day,’ in which Ned spends a day with his Dad, who has recently moved into a new flat. The children then discussed which ideas from the list that they gathered, could be useful for Ned, who is having to adjust to a dfferent family situation and is missing his Dad.
