Outwoods Primary School


Our Vision

We strive to ensure that the children get the very best chance of success.  They only get this one chance and we believe that they deserve this to be the very best that we can offer - after all, it is their entitlement.  An ambitious exciting curriculum that is equitable is on offer and immerses the children in to engaging learning experiences.  We grow enthusiastic, inquisitive, and resilient learners, who are independent, active in their learning and embrace challenge. 

By the end of their Outwoods’ journey, their experiences will have provided the children with the opportunities to aspire to be more and have the awareness and initiative to achieve their full potential.  We aspire to develop children who have a life-long love of learning and will have made memories to last a lifetime.
