Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.
Our school is an inclusive one. We have pupils from all backgrounds and take a real pride in providing an education that is tailored to the individual child’s specific needs. Our motto ‘we care , we learn, we grow’ is practised in every aspect of school life.
All children are encouraged to fulfil their full potential. Our children are challenged and encouraged to develop their talents whilst those who need support are guaranteed a helping hand, through sensitive, individually targeted support allowing them to achieve and prosper in a stimulating caring environment.
Outwood’s ACORN Values
At Outwood we want all of our learners to become ……
A – Aspirational learners who embrace learning throughout their lives
C – Curious and inquisitive minds that explore the world around them
O – Open minded individuals who embrace all opportunities with enthusiasm
R – Respect and resilient global citizens who excel in a rich and diverse curriculum
N – Nurturing and caring individuals who make a positive contribution to society
These ‘Acorn’ core values that feed through all of the children’s learning
We genuinely care about each other and every one of the children here – that’s what we hope you’ll notice from the minute you step through the doors. It’s a warm atmosphere – a home from home!
If you are visiting our website for the first time you are in no doubt in the midst of that all important decision – which primary school to choose for your son or daughter. It’s a difficult decision and will no doubt involve a bit of research, chatting to other parents/carers and reviewing information on websites such as this.
We’d like to help you as much as possible to make your decision an easy one. You can visit our school whenever you wish, chat to me in person and have a look around our classrooms. Please call the school on 0161 – 437 – 1715 to arrange a visit.
Many thanks for visiting the website. If you have any questions that aren’t answered in these pages, don’t hesitate to give me a call.
