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.
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.
