Thank you so much for your interest in finding out more about our schools in The Woodland’s Federation.
The Woodland’s Federation was founded in 2014 and is comprised of two small rural first schools- Talbot First School, Kingstone and St Peter’s (VC) C of E First School, Marchington.
We are small schools with a big heart and an even bigger ambition for all. Both schools are committed to provide a rich educational experience to ensure that all children in our care reach the very best of their potential.
The education of the ‘whole child’ is at the core of our schools ensuring we equip our children with the skills and the belief that they can be the change they want to see in the world. The use of Forest School, outdoor learning and quality educational visits allows us to enrich the curriculum giving our pupils real experiences to enhance their understanding of the topics/skills they are learning.
We strive to be at the very centre of our local communities, working closely with our families and wider community.
I am incredibly proud to lead a team of dedicated staff who open our pupils’ eyes to the amazing world of possibilities around them.
We would love to invite you in to experience our schools as words cannot adequately describe the very special, family, feel that each school embodies.
If you would like to visit one, or both, of our schools, you can contact Mrs Hill on either of the phone numbers listed to arrange a visit.
Thank you once again for your interest in our schools and I look forward to meeting you to tell you more about our wonderful schools.
My very best wishes,
Mr Jason Gathercole.
Each week we have a value of the week which we focus on in our Collective Worship sessions and in our classes, the staff look out for a child who has shown this value throughout the week. The child chosen in each class is then awarded a values certificate.
The rainbow in our motto directly links into our Core Values.
