Vision & Values

The staff, governors, pupils and parents of Woodborough Woods work together to produce our school values and vision. It is always good to hear your thoughts on what values you feel are especially important for our children. Thank you.

Our Vision

At Woodborough Woods, we ‘Grow Together’ following Jesus’ example to ‘Love your neighbour as you love yourself’ (Matthew 22:37-39) because through love for one another, we can build a strong learning community ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to flourish.

Reflecting our distinctive Christian character

Woods C of E Foundation School is an inclusive school founded by the church. Strong links with the church have been a feature of our school for over 250 years, and this partnership forms a solid foundation for our teaching within. We aim to deliver a high-quality education to our pupils, underpinned by the beliefs and practices of Christianity as well as celebrating the diversity in our community.

Our Mission

Jesus taught his followers to grow together in faith, supporting each other along this path. Our mission is to ensure all pupils are able to let their light shine in ways that support their individuality. The fruits of the Holy Spirit encapsulate this perfectly, guiding us on our journey towards becoming inspirational members of our community. During their time in school, pupils learn about these fruits and recognise ways in which they can show these qualities in their daily lives.

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Galatians 5:22-23

Sharing & Exploring our Core Values 

Each half term we will explore our vision and mission statement by using our school values as chosen by our school community. Each week staff are on the lookout for pupils demonstrating our chosen value. These children will be celebrated during our weekly ‘Shining Star’ worship to recognise the part they have played in sharing our values. With parental permission, their photos will also be shared with the wider school community via Yammer.

‘Here are some photos from the workshops we held to explore our school values together.’
