Head Teacher's Welcome
Welcome to Snape Wood Primary and Nursery School,
I am so proud, privileged and honoured to be the Headteacher of this special and unique inner-city community school, where high aspirations are at the heart of all that we do.
At Snape Wood, we develop happy, confident and secure children in a nurturing, stimulating and creative environment. We have high expectations of all learners and provide intensive support allowing all children to make good progress, regardless of their starting point. In addition to academic success, we are committed to identifying, developing and nurturing individual talents and aptitudes so that all children achieve their full potential.
We have a talented and dedicated team who work hard to plan and provide an ambitious and engaging curriculum where children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning. Our PRIDE Values (Positive Attitude, Respect, Inquisitive, Determination and Empathy) are woven and embedded throughout our school life and children are taught to have sense of PRIDE in everything they do.
Building on children’s self-esteem is at the heart of our can do ethos – making mistakes is not a barrier or hindrance, but a platform to progress and succeed, no matter what!
We believe parental support is crucial to the success of a child’s education and progress. We provide a range of opportunities for parents to engage with (or find out about) their child’s learning. We have an open-door policy, and are available after school to discuss their child’s learning or any concerns. We strongly believe that by working together as a team, we will make a significant difference to the lives of our children. We have high aspirations for all our children so that, by the time our pupils leave us, we aim to equip every child with the skills and tools needed to make positive contributions to both the school and wider society.
In summary, children at Snape Wood thrive during their time here. We are a ‘Small School that makes a Big Difference’ – we believe that our provision provides ‘Excellence for All’.
We welcome current and prospective parents / carers into our school to see for themselves how children learn at Snape Wood, confident in the knowledge that they will be impressed by what they see.
If you would like to find out more, I would be delighted to show you around so that you can see the school in action.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have.
I look forward to seeing you.
Mrs Shewley Choudhury
