Welcome Message

Welcome to our school and website. We hope that the site will give you a flavour of our school.  

We have included lots of useful information about the school, the classes, the curriculum and the many exciting things that we do at school. You will also see some photographs of work, displays, events and learning experiences in our school. 

We are part of the Derby Diocesan Academy Trust and enjoy the partnerships with other schools in the trust.  

Our curriculum provides a broad range of opportunities. Children learn through themed topics, in which staff plan a variety of first hand experiences and use creative and imaginative teaching to make learning exciting and memorable. We have superb school grounds and enjoy learning outdoors as much as we can.  

Our children are amazing. They are polite, respectful and welcoming, and we are proud of their achievements. The staff work incredibly hard to foster positive relationships with children, parents, visitors, the community and the parish. We can achieve great things by working together as a team. We are proud to be a church school and part of Derby Diocese.  

We hope you enjoy looking at our website and find it useful. If you can not find the information you are looking for, please contact the school directly where someone will be happy to help.

Thank you for visiting.

Mrs Sarah Tew  (Executive Headteacher), Mr Mathew Windsor (Head of School) and the team of Staff and Governors at Woodthorpe Church of England Primary School.
