Welcome to Woodgrange

We are a four form entry Infant School catering for children aged 3-7.
Our Nursery class offers part time sessions (3 hours per day over 5 days per week for children aged 3 and above)
For school admission purposes we are “twinned with“ Godwin Junior school, our close neighbours.

We are part of the Newham North Learning Partnership (NNLP)- A federation of 8 local primary schools. We are committed to working together to ensure the best education for all children across the federation.

Our Philosophy

Woodgrange is a nurturing school at the heart of the community.

We will provide child-centred, high quality learning through play and exploration that fosters curiosity, confidence and a love of learning. 
We actively promote the following learning attributes in our youngest children through our Learning Dinosaurs:

  • Exploring (Explorosaurus)
  • Asking questions (Askaraptor)
  • Thinking (Thinkadocus)
  • Cooperating and sharing (Shareonyx)
  • Sticking at things, even when they are hard (Stickosaurus)

We build on these attributes in Key Stage 1 (year 1 and Year 2) and help children develop the following Powers of Learning:

  • Cooperation
  • Curiosity
  • Independence
  • Resilience
  • Reflectiveness

We recently asked our parents what they would tell a friend about our school. Here are some of their responses

The school:

“.Fantastic community focused school truly passionate about learning and its students”

“.Woodgrange instills a foundation that enables children to grow both academically and personally”

Its a lovely school. They care about the children and are interested in progressive ways to learn, my child is really happy.”

“I love that its gentle on the children. It allows them to develop at a pace which keeps the enjoyment of learning alive.”
