Woodgrove Primary School commenced operations in January 1999, using the premises of Woodlands Ring Primary School with a total enrolment of 660 students in 17 classes. The school officially moved to its present premises on 5 September 1999.
The first Principal, Mrs Tan Chin Cheoh, started the school in 1999 with only 12 teachers and 5 support staff members until her retirement in 2005 when the enrolment grew to 2650 students. In 2006, Miss Teo Bee Eng was appointed as Principal. The school had about 110 teachers. The current principal, Miss Josephine Ng has headed the school since 2012.
The school has changed its Strategic Thrusts to include a strong focus on developing a Learner-Centred Environment and a Caring Community as it believes that children study best when they are happy and engaged in school. The school will continuously improve the quality and range of school experiences through developing staff capacity and improving the learning environment under PERI upgrading. The school will build on its partnership with parents and other stakeholders so that together, we can bring out the best in our students developing them into confident communicators, compassionate and creative individuals, and independent and effective learners and thinkers.
