What we offer

All children attending Woodcroft are exposed to experiences which will develop their wisdom, awe and wonder in the world around them and educate them further as wonderful individuals. 

Outdoor Space and Access

We have fantastic outdoor space at Woodcroft and aim to use it as much as possible throughout the entire year. We have a mud kitchen in place and lots of water activities for your child to play and learn with whilst out in the fresh air.


Whatever the weather we try to get our children outside! As well as simply encouraging a love of nature and the great outdoors, outdoor play has many other benefits for our children. It promotes healthy physical activity, team play and social interactions.

Forest School

We are very excited to be able to offer Forest School sessions at Woodcroft Academy. These sessions will be led by Miss Moss. Forest School is a learner led experience where children learn and explore in the natural environment. During these sessions your child will have lots of fun playing and exploring in our outdoor environment and will be encouraged to enjoy games, imaginary play, craft making using natural materials and challenges such as climbing ropes and trees. They are also a great way to further develop and hone children’s physical development. To find out more about our wonderful forest school please visit our 'Forest School Page'.
