Our School

On behalf of the staff and the governors I am delighted to welcome you to our website.

Shaw Wood is a safe, friendly and welcoming school where expectations and standards are high.  Every member of staff takes great pride in helping our young pupils to find, celebrate and develop their unique and special talents and skills. In this way we can ensure that children not only achieve the best possible academic standards but also grow in to happy, healthy, kind and caring young people.

As a team and a school community we are dedicated to providing the highest possible quality of education for all our pupils. We have devised a curriculum that is broad, interesting and increasingly includes excellent technology provision equips our children to be successful learners in the 21st Century. We work extremely hard to ensure that programmes of study for individual children underpin the rich educational experience we offer so that every child’s needs are met and each is supported to succeed.

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.  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.
