About Woodlands Community Primary School
The school was built in September 1977 at the foot of the mountain overlooking the new town of Cwmbran, the hills of Gwent and the Bristol Channel. The school is comprised of ten main teaching areas, separated into Foundation Phase (Infants) and Key Stage 2 (Juniors) around two central school halls
Adjoining the main building is The Nursery Class with its own garden and play area and an I.C.C. (Integrated Children’s Centre) Satellite which focuses on pre-school children and their parents, providing services such as Health Visitors, parenting classes, baby club, speech and language, attention and listening etc.
All our classrooms are attractive and well organised. Staff take great care to provide a stimulating and interesting environment for the pupils. Classrooms have book corners, craft areas, role play, computers and many other activities. The main school building allows access for pupils with disabilities.
Woodlands School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All Torfaen schools, including Woodlands School, follow the SEWSCB procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their children. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school’s child protection policy is available on request.
