"Aspiring to be awesome. Making everyday build a brighter tomorrow."
Welcome to Woodhouse West!
Thank you for visiting our School Website. We hope you will find it very informative and interesting.
At Woodhouse West we believe that all our children should aspire to be the very best they can. (Click to view our Values and Ethos Statement)
We believe that all our children should have access to a curriculum which provides fun, exciting, stimulating first-hand experiences and that our children will be enthused, motivated and immersed in their learning.
There is a strong partnership with parents, carers and the wider community. We want everyone to be involved in their children’s learning journey so that they can share in the joy of their achievements.
We’re always interested in to hear your views and comments about any aspect of school life.
You are welcome to come and visit our school, please phone to make an appointment.
As you were probably aware the school had an Ofsted visit on Tuesday 13th March 2018. This was the first short inspection carried out since the school was judged to be good in February 2014. The inspection findings were that Woodhouse West Primary School "is still rated as GOOD and continues to improve".
I am sure you will agree the inspection findings are a true reflection of all the hard work and commitment that makes Woodhouse West such a good school. You can read a copy of the report here.
Woodhouse West Primary School made the news this term,
when the Sheffield Star did a special feature as part of their
education focus. The article celebrates the children’s
achievements in reading and highlights some of the wonderful
home learning that the children have done. The article entitled
“Why ‘real learning’ makes a difference for schoolchildren”
is available from the Star Offices or as an electronic version.
As a school we promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. For information please click here.
New School Dinner Menu
Please note that from Monday 16th April 2018, we have a new school dinner menu. We have colour coded the 3 week menu to make it easier for parents to follow. There has also been a change to the grab bag menu, we now offer different sandwich fillings.
Parents/Carers can we please bring to your attention the following Public Health letter,(click here) regarding the importance of the vaccination programme.

We are excited to announce that Woodhouse West has a new band called 'West 17', they meet every Monday after school. Mrs Denton teaches Electric Guitar, Bass Guitar and Drums.
