Woodmansterne Primary


A warm welcome to Woodmansterne Primary School and thank you for the interest you have shown in our wonderful, creative school.  

I am incredibly proud to be Headteacher here at Woodmansterne and working alongside a highly skilled and experienced team of staff we offer our children an excellent educational experience.  Our creative and ambitious curriculum with high standards at its heart, allows us to never set limits on what our children can achieve. 

At Woodmansterne, you will find a welcoming and purposeful environment centered on our school values. We see our role as facilitators 'Growing Learners for Life' and we aim for our children to leave as confident, resilient and respectful individuals who are ready for their next stage of school and beyond. Woodmansterne is a place where everyone is challenged to perform at their best and where there is a commitment to nurturing and growing happy, successful, intellectually curious and determined children with a strong sense of moral and cultural values. 

Our curriculum has been designed with high expectations of progress and achievement that enables all our children to aim high, take risks and fulfil their potential. We make full use of our extensive and well-resourced school grounds to provide a broad, rich and creative learning experience for every child. 

 We are a 2-form entry school with a nursery. We are proud to be part of the Bourne Education Trust who share our values and educational philosophy. Being part of a MAT provides valuable opportunities to collaborate with other schools across the primary and secondary phases.  

The school is situated in the village of Woodmansterne, in Reigate and Banstead, and lies at the edge of the Surrey County Council boundary with the London boroughs of Sutton and Croydon. We are a popular school having been oversubscribed in recent years.    I hope this website will provide a detailed pictures of the wonderful school we have, and I look forward to welcoming you to our community.

Our Aims and Values

Growing Learners for Life

At Woodmansterne Primary School we work in partnership with children, families, staff, governors and the wider community to:

  • Create a culture of excellence in which everyone feels motivated and trusted to take risks
  • Provide a first class learning environment which recognises and fulfils the academic, social and emotional potential of every child
  • Recognise and meet the challenge that every child is unique and offer what is right for them
  • Develop pupils who love the challenge of learning and are resilient to failure

We see our values as integral to achieving our aims and we consistently reiterated them through our classroom practice, learning environments and wider school life. They underpin our teaching of British Values, our PSHE curriculum and are supported by effective and consistent behaviour management across the whole school.





Children are recognised for their respectfulness towards everyone through the reward of school behaviour points. We encourage respect by demonstrating a caring nature, being polite to all, looking after property and listening to others. We expect mutual respect for others to be modelled by all stakeholders.


We teach our children to be accountable for their individual actions through their learning and behaviour. We provide boundaries so they are able to make choices through the provision of a safe environment and empowering education. Children are encouraged to know, understand and exercise their rights and personal freedoms in the school environment, as well as the wider community.


We recognise that physical, social and emotional health are important factors in a child’s wellbeing. At Woodmansterne, our aim is to provide all children with strategies to increase their resilience in learning, as in life, to teach them to persevere through setbacks, take on challenges and risk making mistakes to reach a goal.


We believe that reflection is a vital step in our children’s learning and progress. We teach our children to think carefully about their learning and actions by getting them to recognise their strengths and weaknesses. We also encourage them to have quiet time alone and with others in order to be happy, engaged and challenged learners.
