Woodland Warrior's provides opportunities for children to enhance and enjoy learning outdoors. Each child experiences six to eight sessions in small groups and it runs twice weekly. The planned sessions cover wildlife, crafts, using and understanding the natural environment, learning hunts and campfire cooking. The children learn how to stay safe, individual skills and team building all in a fun way. It gives the children chance to embrace the outdoors and to take ownership of their learning.

 The way we work at Wyndham

 'Individual empowerment results from quality honking'

Lessons from Geese provides a perfect example of the importance of team work and how it can have a profound and powerful effect on any form of personal or business endeavour. When we use these five principles in our personal and business life it will help us to foster and encourage a level of passion and energy in ourselves, as well as those who are our friends, associates or team members.

It is essential to remember that teamwork happens inside and outside of business life when it is continually nurtured and encouraged.


Lesson 1 - The Importance of Achieving Goals

As each goose flaps its wings it creates an UPLIFT for the birds that follow. By flying in a 'V' formation the whole flock adds 71 percent extra to the flying range.

Outcome - When we have a sense of community and focus, we create trust and can help each other to achieve our goals.


Lesson 2 - The Importance of Team Work

When a goose falls out of formation it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of flying alone. It quickly moves back to take advantage of the lifting power of the birds in front.

Outcome - If we had as much sense as geese we would stay in formation with those headed where we want to go. We are willing to accept their help and give our help to others.


Lesson 3 - The Importance of Sharing

When a goose tires of flying up from it drops back into formation and another goose flies to the point position.

Outcome - It pays to take turns doing the hard tasks. We should respect and protect each other's unique arrangement of skills, capabilities, talents and resources.



Core Purpose

Working Together to Achieve Personal Greatness.


We believe we are a  school

Each letter of the word  represents one of our expectations. It is part of our learning culture and we celebrate every  step on the way to success.

 ……… Good to talk, even better to listen

Communication skills are a life skill which we embed in all areas of the curriculum. We develop and share ideas and listen to each other. We listen to all stakeholders to ensure that we are providing the best for the children of Wyndham. In learning time and social time, the art of communicating effectively is of the upmost importance. We encourage all our pupils to ask questions to become independent learners.

 ……... Respect myself, others and the community

We respect every individual that works and learns at Wyndham. A culture of respect for the environment and people in it is always praised. Every opportunity is taken to bring visitors into school and for our learning to support the community locally. We learn collaboratively and share ideas as we work.

 ……... Enjoy and achieve safely

Our school days should be filled with joy, excitement and fun. We must ensure that we promote an environment of mutual respect and of humour. A safe environment that stimulates and excites, a school where we are confident to smile ahead of our challenges, a school confident enough to laugh together, a school that our community is proud to call its own.

 ……... Able to make mistakes and learn from them

We believe that new learning takes place when challenges are presented. We tackle these positively and recognise that making a mistake is part of the learning process. We aim to challenge each individual and support them in their own learning journey.

 ……... Together we aim high

Learning begins with the confidence that you can! It is our responsibility to ensure that every child at Wyndham believes they have the ability to learn and the self assurance to solve problems and overcome difficulties. Together we must inspire and enthral, so that children develop a desire to learn that is borne out of the magic of discovery. Learning must be relevant so that children see a reason for new skills and knowledge and can celebrate the feeling of achievement gained from the new doors they can open and be proud of a job well done.

The Government’s Extended Services Initiative is intended to meet the needs of children, their families and the wider community. Schools are deemed to be at the heart of the community and are ideally placed to provide access to a range of opportunities, activities and support.

Welcome To Wyndham Spencer Academy's School Council Page


Why do we have a School Council?

The School Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made. Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.

Who can be a member of the School's Council?

Each member of our School Council is elected by their classmates at the beginning of the school year after a short presentation explaining why they should be elected. School Council members need to be confident at speaking in front of others, and be a good role model for others in the school. School Council members will be ambassadors for our school. They may be asked to escort visitors around school or deliver presentations to visitors

What do we do?

Members of the Council take part in discussions about what we would like to improve in our school and also feed back any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council. The School Council are also responsible for monitoring safety in our school and regularly review anti-bullying initiatives.
