Woodie News - December 2022

Thank you to all our parents who were able to drop in to our Talk4Writing open morning today. Our boys and girls loved having you in school and being able to show off all their hard work. We hope you enjoyed it and were able to learn something new too! 

If your child/ren require a top up of any of their school uniform, we have a large selection of pre-loved items for all our families free of charge. Please pop into the office or give us a call and we'll do our best to help. Due to the large amount of stock we currently have, unfortunately we cannot accept any more donations at this time. Please however place any bags of clothing in our clothing bank in the car park behind the  Sainsburys in Portland Place, this helps with our schools fundraising. 
Can we please remind parents/carers to ensure ALL clothing, lunch boxes, bottles etc are clearly marked with your child’s name and class? This means items can be matched up quickly. Thank you.


  • Primary 1 to Primary 5 pupils are all eligible for universal free school meals. Primary 6 and Primary 7 pupils who do not have access to free school meals should pay through ParentPay for their meals. Parents and carers are reminded that they must re-apply at the start of each school year for school clothing and free school meals grant If you haven't done this yet please do so immediately.
  • School meals and milk are £2.00 and 26p. We monitor ParentPay regularly so it is important that parents/carers check their account and maintain a credit balance. If you do have a debit balance please make a payment to clear it. You can set up an alert advising you of a low balance to avoid going into debt.
  • Children who wish to attend Toast-n-Go should access the playground from 8.30am via the Johnstone Road gate only. Please note there will be no staff in the playground at this time. All other gates will open at 8.45am with a member of staff present.


  • Your child cannot use the school transport until SLC/SPT confirms their place. Once allocated a place they can only travel on that specific route.  If your child currently has a place on the school bus and you move address you must reapply to SLC. Until they confirm your new place, your child cannot travel on the bus as they are not insured.  School transport application.
  • School Buses pick up and drop off stops August 2022

Dear Parents, Carers, Children and Friends,

Welcome to our vibrant and informative website and Twitter feed!

I am certain that it will give you a taste of our lovely, big school, our dedicated staff team, and our very enthusiastic children!

We love to be busy in Woodside. We like to feel that we are hardworking and achieving, caring and mindful of helping others, and we also reckon that being happy and having fun in school, supports our learning.

Our photo gallery is proof of that and will tell some of these stories!

We are also delighted in Woodside to be well supported by our parents and carers, and our fab Parent Council always come up with some amazing ideas for fundraising,  helping us to provide exciting experiences for our learners.

Finally, and most importantly, we are proud of the quality of relationships existing in Woodside.

We are one team, one big family, and this is core to any work we endeavour to do.

I do hope you will enjoy browsing, reading, learning about, and capturing the infectious life and ethos of Woodside!

Warm wishes, 
Elaine Renwick
