ParentPay: South Lanarkshire Council is rolling out an online payment system to all schools & nurseries for parents. This means that Woodside will become cashless as all school dinners and trips/outings will need to be paid online and not through the school office. Children have been issued with information and a frequently asked Q & A sheet which can be found here. Pupils have received an activation letter on 18th February and a letter with important information - please register your child/ren as soon as you receive this. As always thank you for your co-operation with this.

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!
