Welcome to Story Wood School
by Jablai Saleh Headteacher
I am extremely proud to be the Headteacher of such a forward-thinking school, that provides countless opportunities for children. It is extremely rewarding to be part of a passionate team that activates children’s minds and nurtures their emotional well-being.
The Story Wood staff are inspirational: we believe high quality teaching and an environment conducive to learning are key factors that lead to pupils’ success and motivation for learning. We offer all our children exceptional provision, which is cultivated through high expectations, passion and unconditional care. Our coherent curriculum is bespoke to our school: it is accessible, widens children’s horizons and is meaningful to them. Initially, designed by the staff in 2020, it organises the knowledge, skills and concepts from the National Curriculum (2014) through progression, purposeful and engaging lessons across all subjects.
Story Wood School really is a place where children can write their own narrative and pursue their dreams. Our school name, Story Wood, was chosen by our children in 2011 and was selected as the actual ‘Story Wood’ our Forest School (wooded area), was and remains the children’s favourite location in school.
We encourage our children to be inquisitive in this rapidly changing world; we recognise that they are the future of our society and we want to ensure that we equip them with the knowledge and confidence to become excellent citizens in life with ambitious aspirations. To ensure that our children are well equipped to adapt to the future that lies ahead, we have made technology accessible to all children. I am very proud of the technology opportunities we offer, which includes the use of various learning platforms to support learning across the curriculum and with home learning.
Story Wood School is underpinned by British Values, our inclusivity is promoted through our ethos which embraces all members of our school community and where everyone is equally valued.
