At The Woodside Academy we recognise talent comes in many forms. Children who find traditional academic subjects challenging can thrive in other areas. This builds resilience, improves their confidence and prepares them for the modern world.

‘Creativity is the key to success in the future, and primary education is where teachers can bring creativity in children at that level.’
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

Creativity is vital. It allows new approaches to difficult and challenging questions, it opens new paths that may never have been identified before and  is a rewarding and enjoyable approach to learning.

Here at the Woodside Academy we teach children to find links between subjects, to get them to understand that there are many ways in which we can learn. We use every opportunity to allow the children to learn through a creative cross curricular approach.
