Primary Academy


Woodside Primary Academy is sponsored by the REAch2 Academy Trust.  Founded in 2012, REAch2 is the largest primary-only academy trust in the country, and currently supports 355 primary academies across England.

In these challenging times, we believe that the first school experience is the start of a very important journey for our children.  We aim to enable them to broaden their horizons, be confident in their abilities and help shape their future lives.  Our key focus is to ensure that all our pupils are provided with the right educational environment, which not only inspires them to embrace learning and develop creativity, but also to have fun, make friends, respect individuality and ultimately to reach their full potential.

The Trust has 10 regional multi-academy trusts (MAT) under one over-arching umbrella trust.  The umbrella provides for a broad membership that will encourage each MAT to become self-sufficient and sustainable in the long-term.  The target is for each MAT to be led by one or more outstanding academies that are able to contribute capacity within the individual MAT and across the wider umbrella.  MATs will provide economies of scale to secure the long-term educational and financial viability of their constituent academies.

REAch2 underpins our seven life values, with their own unique cornerstones of the trust - please click here for more information.
