Values and Ethos Statement


Woodfield is a friendly and industrious school, where we place the highest priority on our children’s happiness, academic achievement and personal development. Our school motto of ‘Challenging, Caring, Celebrating Success’ encapsulates our approach, and our school values are underpinned by the principles of Growth Mindset. We encourage a ‘can-do’ attitude towards all activities and aim to develop in our children a self-belief, self-reliance and positive approach towards all that they encounter. We believe that mistakes are learning opportunities and do not shy away from challenging ourselves and others, in order to develop the skills that are needed to support our children of today to be the citizens of tomorrow. All of this is done within a friendly, supportive, open environment where children are encouraged to be the very best that they can be.


Our Seven School Values are:

  • Self-esteem
  • Hard Work
  • Respect
  • Resilience
  • Empathy
  • Kindness
  • Good Manners


These were developed in conjunction with all staff, parents, children and governors, to reflect the wishes and principles of our community. Our Behaviour Policy, ethos and whole approach is underpinned by our school values. Each month, we focus on a different value, and examples of ‘living our values’ are celebrated across school.

At Woodfield Primary School, our mission statement is:

Be Caring, Be Ready, Be Safe.
