Headteachers Welcome

A very warm welcome to Woodley Primary School. I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of Woodley, a happy, friendly, caring and vibrant school where children enjoy their education and where staff, governors, children and the community of Woodley have worked hard to build and maintain our fantastic school. This is a school where everybody matters.

We are very proud that our school is a very caring and supportive environment for our children. It is important to us that the children of Woodley are encouraged, make progress, achieve their full potential and enjoy learning throughout their school career.

At Woodley we have wonderful pupils, staff and parents who contribute to the ongoing success of the school. We have a strong, talented and dedicated team of staff who are extremely hard working, committed to raising standards and have consistently high expectations of pupils both academically and socially.

Our aim is to make learning enjoyable, allowing every individual to achieve their best, nurturing their talents in a safe, secure environment, and providing them with opportunities to learn the skills required to become confident, tolerant, respectful young people, who will be able to contribute positively to the wider British society.

Visitors to our school always comment on the warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere of the school – we are the ‘Woodley family’.

We value the support of parents and, through partnership working, we aim to keep our children safe, nurture their individual capabilities and talents, as well as develop a life-long love of learning.

Working together we can make sure that our children ‘reach for the stars’ and enjoy sharing and celebrating a range of activities and experiences that are on offer to the children.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find all the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school with any queries you may have.

We invite you to come and see us at work, in order to gain a better understanding of what Woodley has to offer. Please do not hesitate to contact us on 0161 430 6609.

You will always be made very welcome.

Kind regards
