Dan Polak, our Deputy Head Teacher, Sandy Brown, who is a National Leader of Education and was also a Head and Executive Head Teacher for many Years. We also have a number of Specialist Leaders of Education in Literacy, Maths, PE, Initial Teacher Training and Early Years. We work with our own multi-academy trust and other schools, teachers and leaders to ensure quality learning and provision as part of the North Devon Teaching School Alliance. This also supports and develops our school to provide the very best for your child. Our school aims to keep up to date, to be innovative and to be excellent in all we undertake. Our school vision is ‘Believe, Belong and Become’.  We are committed to helping our children develop and evolve at Woolacombe School and beyond.  We wish to empower, encourage and inspire children to become life-long learners, who are confident, creative, respectful, resilient, independent and understand how ‘values’ can enrich your life. If you can help in any way to further our aims please let us know. Looking forward to working together…Gail Holmes | Head Teacher
