How we care for and support children

We care about every child in our school. Through our strong commitment to pastoral care we strive to ensure that we provide outstanding support for all of our pupils and families.

Our school is very proud of our friendly, open-door policy that allows parents and staff to openly discuss any issues and resolve them together. We strongly support our local community and we are involved in and host many community events that help to unite Anstey.  We also have our own stay and play for parents and toddlers. Our amazing Parent and Teacher Association plan a variety of events to raise funds for the children at the school such as our annual fireworks event, Christmas and Summer Fairs and our Wooldstock open air summer concert.

Woolden Hill prides itself on supporting all children, regardless of their background or additional circumstances. We believe that a child’s potential should not be limited or pre-determined and have a range of provision in place so that all children can thrive.

In each school day we encourage every child to develop confidence in themselves. To help support this, our Emotional Literacy Support Assistant works closely with children who may need support with friendships, bereavements or a personal issue.

For children with specific requirements, our school is highly inclusive and we will work with a range of professionals to ensure that all needs are met. In addition, our access to EPIC Educational Psychology and Speech and Language team ensures that, if necessary, children receive rapid support. This has also enabled all our staff to benefit from bespoke training to support all children in our school.
