Shaw Wood in the Community

Shaw Wood Academy takes great pride in getting involved in the local community where possible and enhancing the community spirit of the pupils, parents and staff associated with Shaw Wood Academy. It’s important to Shaw Wood Academy that everyone associated with us is proud of that fact and that they are proud of the local community.


> Reading Octopus Challenge

Congratulations to Gracie Rutherford. The first child in Key Stage 2 to achieve the Reading Octopus challenge.

We are looking forward to giving more keyrings and certificates to more of our dedicated and hardworking readers this half term.

Thank you to parents for your continued support with the challenge!


Take a look at our latest pupils to achieve the challenge…Well done everyone!

> Choir at The Frenchgate Centre


> Tea Dance @ Armthorpe Community Centre

> Purple Stars

As part of our amended behaviour and reward policy, we have added a purple star to the classes’ behaviour ‘Good to be Green’ board. This is a reward for those extra special children who consistently show outstanding behaviour, effort and attitude through the term. 

As a reward and thank you, the children enjoyed a festive afternoon tea with SLT as well as taking part in all their fun sessions throughout the day!

> Ideas for Community Events?

The new Healthy Learning Healthy Lives programme, launched on January 15, is all set to improve the fitness, health and happiness of local children in the borough. It aims to assist teachers and teaching professionals in developing an integrated approach where the learning environment supports a child’s health and well being.
