Vision and Values

Our vision is the ultimate aim for our learners.

We believe that a primary setting is the foundation for future members of society and by directing our children on the right track they will flourish academically, spiritually, morally, culturally and socially.

At Woodslee we value every member of our school community and we provide a learning environment where our pupils can grow, learn and love in a safe and secure way. Our adults, inspirational figures globally, nationally and locally, and each other are our role models and we use them as our inspiration as we journey through the school. Our Woodslee Way is fundamental in ensuring that each child will be fully equipped to be successful in life and our school curriculum reflects these values.

All children are encouraged to go beyond what is possible; to think for themselves, to apply their acquired knowledge and skills, to improve and to transform. Our children persevere through every challenge and live lives full of faith, hope, ambition and aspiration. Every child is unique and this is celebrated in all that we do at Co-op Academy Woodslee.

Our policy promotes British values (democracy, British Law, individual liberty, mutual respect, tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs).

Our Co-op Values
All of this is based upon the values of Co-op Group which will inform our behaviours.

Self-help: We do not expect to be spoon fed – we will try to do things for ourselves in the right way and at the right time.

Self-responsibility: Everyone should act in a responsible way around the academy site and in the local community. We take responsibility for our own learning; we want to become independent learners.Self-help; Self-responsibility; Democracy; Equality; Equity; Solidarity.

Equality: We are proud to be part of a very multi-cultural academy, with students from all over the world; it is important that we treat each other with respect and accept that others may be different from ourselves. We should all of us have equal chances to succeed.

Equity: We want to look for the best in each other. Rewarding others fairly to encourage all types of achievement.

Democracy: We will contribute our ideas to make the academy a success.

Solidarity: We can achieve more by working together, rather than as individuals.
