Following on from our visit to Hilderstone Hall in June, a group of ladies came to visit us at school on Friday 23rd November 2018. All ages thoroughly enjoyed the morning, along with tea and cake. It was so lovely to see the children interacting with the elderly ladies so confidently and enthusiastically. Every class performed a song which was met with delight and a few tears. It was a great experience for all involved.
Our children and Mrs Botham are very proud of our Remembrance Day display. Parents and carers are welcome to come and see it in the hall.

Two more of our pupils also were chosen to have their photographs exhibited during the evening.
What great fun Sports Relief week was!
Five extra sessions of physical exercise; one every morning which the children (and staff!) participated in wholeheartedly. The sessions included Keep Fit, Yoga and Dancing.
Not only was it great fun we also raised £89.60 for the worthy cause, well done everyone.

I am delighted to be able to publish a copy of the report from our recent Ofsted inspection, showing that we remain a ‘good’ school. The report will be published by Ofsted on 24th February.
As governors we were pleased that the inspector recognised the many positive aspects of our village school including the pupils’ behaviour and relationships with families. There are, as always, points to improve on and the school is already working to address them.
We would like to thank all the staff for their hard work, parents for their support and of course the pupils who are a delight and we are all so proud of.

Woodseaves Academy has an exciting new project that will be getting underway in the next few weeks. Mrs Quigley has successfully applied for a grant for the school from the National Lottery and this has enabled the school to develop some of the outside space. This new space will help us to continue our development of a healthy and active school life. We are all working hard to ensure the pupils at this school know how important it is for them to be as active as they can and to lead a healthy lifestyle. We will keep you up to date with this exciting project!
On Thursday 31st January 2018, the Reception children went to the Brampton Museum in Newcastle-Under-Lyme to explore toys from the past. They had a super day looking at and playing with the toys and got the chance to also make their own out of recycled materials.
The children in Reception spent a wonderful afternoon with Nanna Ferry, looking at all the toys she used to play with when she was a child.
