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, and all of our pupils transfer there at the end of Year 2 unless parents choose an alternative school.

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 aspires to be an outstanding, 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 (Stickosaur)

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

“It is a warm, friendly community based school with the emphasis on what is best for the children.”

“The teachers are friendly and helpful”

“Both my sons have loved it and thrived.”

“Brilliant school indeed!”
