Wood Fold is a popular school located in the historic village of Standish.
Over the years we have earned an excellent reputation and enjoy strong links with the local community. We are very proud of every child in our school and of their achievements, both in and beyond the classroom. At Wood Fold there is something for everyone, whether you are a child, parent, teacher or governor. If you are a prospective parent and your child is now ready to begin their Primary education, the following seven years are probably the most valuable. In recognition of this, the team at Wood Fold is committed to nurturing their curriculum and experiential learning. Having undergone Ofsted inspections in October 2008 and September 2014, Wood Fold school was officially judged to be ‘Outstanding’ on both occasions. An accreditation of which we are immensely proud.
Mission Statement, Ethos and Aims
Our constant aim is to facilitate children’s learning in a warm, encouraging and respectful community existing in a quality and stimulating environment.
Our ethos relies heavily on the concept of independent learning and self discipline. We hope to develop in all children the desire to learn and the ability to apply their knowledge. At the same time we want to help each child find the self-esteem and confidence that are so necessary to live a full and happy life.
Through first hand experiences and subsequent understanding we wish to cultivate in all our children, not only the need to learn but also a pride in their work, respect for their surroundings and good relationships with others at home and at school.
