Woolden Hill Primary School is an Ofsted Rated Good School (November 2019) in the village of Anstey. The school is a one form entry primary school that has an intake of 30 pupils for each class. The school has been open for over 40 years. In that time we have gained a well-respected reputation throughout the area for delivering fantastic results and giving children the best possible start in life. We pride ourselves on our high standards of teaching; ensuring our children receive the best possible education as well as have an enjoyable school experience. 

We are very lucky to have a fantastic school environment for our pupils and excellent outdoor learning opportunities such as our own pond, Forest School and even Bradgate Park as our neighbour! 

Our aim is to share our knowledge of:  

  • Digital devices in the classroom  
  • Help schools to understand the benefits of the digital devices and tools  
  • the importance of sharing planning and resources with colleagues but also across schools too   
  • Collaborating with colleagues in Microsoft Teams and OneNote 
  • Assessment Tools – Reading Progress, MS Forms, Assignments
