**IMPORTANT** - Parents Night is scheduled for 5th October - booking will be via the ParentsPortal platform so you must be registered to book a time with your child's teacher. If you are having difficulties getting registered then please pop into the school office.

All school and class communication is issued via the ParentsPortal app. In order to receive all information parents must sign up for this as a matter of urgency as we are already issuing information this way. Our office staff will be in touch to help if you haven't already managed to complete this. Please note that access to ParentsPay is now via the ParentsPortal app. Please click here to get started, thank you. 


  • Parents please remember that children in P6 & P7 pay for lunches and we ask that you top-up their ParentPay account to cover all meals
  • Children in P1-5 should NOT add funds to their school meals payment option on your ParentPay account. 
  • All pupils need a credit balance to book any milk for lunchtimes.
  • Our new families have now been issued with ParentPay codes, please action immediately to allow you access to ParentPay.

With such a big school, the volume of lost property is an issue at Woodside and we can spend a lot of time having to search out lost items.  Can parents/carers ensure ALL clothing, lunch boxes, bottles etc are clearly marked with your child’s name and class. Please reiterate to your children the importance of being responsible for all their belongings and to go to lost property at playtimes and lunch times to search for their stuff. Lost property can be found at the stairwell doors at primary 1 with access from the playground. Unclaimed uniform will be added to our pre-loved stock, and other items disposed of, if not collected.

We have a selection of pre-loved uniforms used to change 'muddy' children and for all our families free of charge. If your child/ren require a top up of any of their school uniform, please pop into the office or give us a call and we'll do our best to help. We are currently short of polo shirts and trousers in smaller sizes. If you can help please hand in any donations to the school office. Remember, donations of other clothing can be placed in our clothing bank in the car park behind the Sainsburys at Portland Place, this helps with our schools fundraising.

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
