As a Church of England Aided Primary school we operate an inclusive admissions system and pupils are welcome irrespective of religion or belief, race, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, ability or disability, opinion or family background. All members of the school are treated with courtesy and compassion. Sensitively nurtured, children enjoy an education embedded in strong Christian values and this engenders growth in confidence, academic achievement and emotional and spiritual strength.
The school benefits from a close relationship with the church community and Community Worship is held in the church on the first Wednesday of each month. Parents, neighbours and villagers are welcomed.
What is an Aided school?
An Aided School is set up and owned by a voluntary body, usually a church body. Wootton-By-Woodstock school was founded by the Reverends Parrott and Lee in the 18th century. The governing body is the employer of staff, and controls pupil admissions and religious education but the school is funded by the state, namely the DFE.
