Welcome to Woodwater Academy

We would like to welcome you to the Woodwater Academy website. We hope the site provides you with useful information about our school and gives you a flavour of the positive and engaging experiences we offer our children.

At Woodwater Academy, we are dedicated to providing the best possible educational journey for our children. Schooling is about every aspect of human personality and achievement and so an important part of the work we do in school is promoting a sense of the joy of 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.

Woodwater Academy, which became an academy in 2013, is a member of Ventrus, a multi-academy trust. The Trust comprises fifteen Devon primary schools and a secondary school, whose aim is to deliver excellence in education through collaborative working and mutual accountability.

Staff and governors of our school benefit hugely from working within a family of schools. The Trust operates a variety of ‘Best Practice Networks’. For the children in the Trust schools, there are opportunities to work and play with children from other Ventrus schools. Whether it be on a Gifted and Talented day for mathematicians, a musical event or in the sporting arena, our children benefit from the expertise and enthusiasm of a large group of talented and skilled teachers and assistants.

We are extremely proud of the positive relationships that we have with our families and the wider community in which they live. We understand that parents and carers wish to take an active role in their child’s education and it is our aim to work as one team in order to deliver the highest standards of education for all our pupils.

Woodwater Academy is a fully inclusive, vibrant school; if you would like to find out more about our curriculum, values and community then please contact the school office to arrange a visit. Our Headteacher, Mrs Olivant, and the Woodwater team will look forward to warmly welcoming you to our school.
