PARENTPAY: Woodside is a cashless school and all school items are paid online via ParentPay.
If you have not yet activated your account, please do so as soon as possiblle. There are guidelines to using your account on the ‘Parent’s Area’ of our website. Can we please ask parents/carers to keep checking ParentPay and ensure that your child’s accounts are up to date with no debit balance. If you require any help please contact the school office, thank you.
Reminder - all pupils in P4 -P7 need to pay for school meals unless you have applied for and been granted free school meals. Please keep checking your child’s ParentPay account to ensure it is up to date and has sufficient funds to cover their lunches, thank you.
Our Breakfast Club starts on Monday 2nd September, between 8.25am and 8.55am and is available free of charge to all pupils. Children who wish to attend should enter the dining hall from the main playground.
LOCKERBIE MANOR Our P7's had a great week away and we had lots of compliments from their instructors about their behaviour, enthusiasm and manners. Well done, we’re very proud of you all. To see our photo gallery, please click here. (More photos will be added in due course)
Important Notice: please check your child/ren’s school bags as all pupils have been issued with the annual data check and contact information to be signed by parents and returned to the school office. All new pupils to Woodside have been issued with their activation codes to enable you to sign up for ParentPay. This allows you to pay for school lunches, milk, school trips and activities. These items cannot be paid in cash and should be paid online. Your prompt action on this is really appreciated, thank you.
Flu Immunisation - the flu team will be in school on Monday 7th October. If you haven’t already returned your form please do so as soon as possible, thank you.
Already we are finding a lot of lost jumpers, blazers and other pieces of lovely school uniform with no names on them. Can we ask that parents mark all their children's items clearly with their name so they can be matched up, thank you.
Pupils who are entitled to free school transport can find information on pick up times for each of the three routes by clicking here

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.
