Vision, Aims & Values

Respectful, Resilient, Ready to learn.

Starting at the school gates, our culture is centred around high expectations, team work and mutual respect of the beliefs and religions of all. We aim to support all pupils to develop their unique identities and confidence to ask questions; valuing every voice. Our community-centred ethos and curriculum teaches our pupils and families to understand the world around them and value and respect differences. All pupils feel supported to show independence in learning; understanding that they all have the ability to do great things, preparing them for life in modern Britain and to be proud of who they are. At Woodstock our aim is to inspire and ignite curiosity and passion for learning both in and out of the classroom. We understand that all children need to see the importance of education and its role within their future lives and acknowledging all of our pupils as individual children is key to ensure they develop a sense of identity and are respectful, resilient and ready to learn.

British Values

We encourage pupils to respect the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance with those of different faiths and beliefs through the delivery of the Everyone’s welcome at Woodstock curriculum. We take reasonably practicable steps to offer a balanced presentation of all views however partisan political views are not promoted.


  • Children are involved in a democratic process—voting in a student councillor 
  • Everyone’s welcome at Woodstock curriculum opportunities

Rule of Law
