to Shaw Wood Academy

Welcome to the Shaw Wood school website which I hope you will find interesting and informative.


Shaw Wood prides itself on being a safe, friendly and welcoming school where expectations and standards are high. Every member of staff makes every effort to help our young people to find, celebrate and develop their unique talents and skills.


Our goal is that for every Shaw Wood child to leave our school as:

  • Caring, respectful, resilient individuals
  • Young people who are proud of their unique talents
  • Life-long learners who aspire to achieve their best
  • Global citizens- confident enough to challenge inequality and unfairness


To ensure that we achieve this we make learning as fun and as innovative as possible. Children learn and grow in a safe and stimulating environment and are given opportunities to develop academically, morally and socially and culturally – underpinned by our belief in core British Values. More information about our innovative approach can be found under the Curriculum tab.


If a school is in the heart of its community, the community should be at the heart of the school. The support and involvement of our parents, families and wider community is essential to the continued success of our children and highly valued. We aim to provide you with regular information about all aspects of school life and opportunities to discuss and celebrate the achievements of your children. More information can be found under our News and Letters tab. Working closely together we can ensure that both you and your children have a happy time through the primary years.


While this brief welcome gives you an introduction to our school nothing replaces first-hand experience and I extend a warm invitation to you and your family to come and visit us to see what a special place Shaw Wood Academy is.
