About Us

Situated in historic town Atherstone in North Warwickshire, Outwoods Primary School is placed firmly at the heart of the community. We are very fortunate to enjoy extensive grounds, ample playground space, and several garden areas. Our mission quite simply, is to ensure that every one of our children reach their true potential. To achieve this, we provide an exciting and varied curriculum, superb extra-curricular activities, additional learning experiences outside of the classroom, and we foster a real team environment in which to achieve. Based on our most recent Ofsted inspection we received the following comments: “this is a good school”; “pupils enjoy school life, especially the opportunities they have to learn through a variety of activities”; our children “behave well around the school and in lessons”; “there is a pleasant and calm atmosphere in the school”. We hope you enjoy finding out more about our school. 

Curriculum

At Outwoods, we offer an exciting and stimulating curriculum which prepares our children forcontinuing on their educational journey. English and Maths taught every day to provide a soundbasis on which to explore all of the other subject areas. These include, computing, Physical Education, Religious Education, Art, Design & Technology, History, Geography, Music, Languages and life skills which are often taught through engaging cross curricular themes. We always strive to deliver our curriculum in imaginative and appealing ways, taking our children’s experiences and interests as a starting point to begin planning. As a consequence, this enables our children to develop knowledge and understanding through first hand experiences in a variety of learning environments. Educational visits enhance the learning in all subjects. 

Learning Outside The Classroom

Whilst acknowledging that conventional models of learning are fundamental to receiving an excellent education, here at Outwoods we enhance our learning by utilising our environment outside of the classroom. our staff are trained in the ‘forest schools’ programme which promotes outdoor learning, as well as providing fresh air and exercise for those participating. We are fortunate at Outwoods to have many excellent facilities to support learning outside and these include garden areas with an eco-garden, a large outdoor gym, a huge sports field, a climbing wall, and a mini ‘astroturf’ area. We also have an outdoor reading circle area, and our upper school building surrounds a garden quad, where our school rabbits live free in a semi-natural environment. In addition, we have many other animals around the school and these include, fish, guinea pigs, gerbils, and not forgetting our friendly visiting dogs. 

Extra Curricular

Outwoods Primary School is a champion of providing rich and varied experience of school life. So, in addition to traditional learning, further learning and interests are extended through extra-curricular activities like sports, competitions and festivals. For example, we offer many extra sporting activities which include, inter-schools competition in football, netball and rounders, etc. Alongside sports we offer a wide range of music tuition, choir practice, art, drama, dance, cooking, model making, gardening, and crafts activities. From time to time, outside agencies run after school clubs in subjects such as African drumming, Aikido, Zumba and multi-sports too.
