Welcome to Woodwater Academy

We welcome visits to our school.  If you would like to come and see what we do, please call the school office and they will make an appointment for Mrs Leeson, our Head of School, to show you around and answer any questions you may have.

Woodwater Academy is part of the Primary Academies Trust which was formed in September 2013. The Primary Academies Trust consists of Hemyock, Wilcombe Primary School, Sampford Peverell C of E  Primary School, Sidbury C of E Primary School, Woodwater Academy, The Duchy Primary School, Orchard Vale Community School and South Brent Primary School.   We have a “schools within school” philosophy that ensures we all work very closely together in ensuring the achievement of the highest standards in all four schools whilst maintaining the individuality and autonomy of the individual schools.    Our Trust provides excellent opportunities for teachers and other staff to develop their professional expertise which directly impacts on the quality of teaching and learning for the children.  Staff are able to share their best practice within a professional learning community developing an exciting and innovative curriculum for all our children.

Being part of the PAT further increases our capacity to share best practise, specialisms and work in a collaborative way to provide high quality learning for all our children.

We do not believe it is enough just to give children a grasp of the basic skills, we believe we need to help each individual child to use and develop those skills.  Schooling is about every aspect of human personality and achievement and so an important part of the work we do in school is promoting the sense of joy about learning.  Developing the children’s personal,  social and emotional skills starts in our Foundation Stage and remains important throughout each child’s time with us.

At Woodwater Academy are extremely proud of the positive relationships that we have with our families and the wider community in which they live.  It is our aim to work as one team in order to deliver the highest standards of education to all of our children.
