Vision, Values and Aims


Woodthorpe Infant School's vision is to support and nurture every child to achieve their potential and to celebrate their development into happy, confident and independent learners.



Our values underpin our school rules (Give me 5!) and are used to develop our 'learning powers' and good social skills. These are;

  1. Care for everyone and everything
  2. Be the best learner you can be
  3. Show respect
  4. Follow instructions straight away
  5. Good manners at all times
