Remember due to the Easter weekend school is closed Friday 19th and Monday 22nd April.

Look out for a letter in school bags today about some new and important arrangements for our playground regarding pupil drop off in the morning. Please take some time to read this and pass the information to any family or friends involved in dropping of any pupils. A copy of the letter can be found here.

SLC are introducing their new Summer Lunch Menu and this starts NEXT WEEK Tuesday 23rd April, a copy of the new menu can be found here. The cost of a school lunch is increasing from this date to £1.70. Please be aware of this when loading your ParentPay account, thank you.

Our ‘School News’ page has more news and important information.

Remember our Twitter page and website calendar are updated regulary, so please keep checking back for news and updates, thank you! Twitter @woodsidepschool

Our school photograph orders for Tempest have been sent away for processing. If you have forgotten to return them to school, you can either post the order direct to Tempest or place your order online with them.

Parental Engagement Survey If you have a spare 5 minutes we would really love to get your feedback on our many, new ‘Parental Engagement’ activities. We want to find out how valuable these have been, as your feedback really helps us with our plans for next session. We have popped a link to a short survey on our school website. Many thanks for completing this! Please click here for the link.

Parent’s Spring Challange! Over 86% of our accounts have been activated on ParentPay so far which is great news, but can you help us reach 90%? Please activate your account and help us reach our next target.
Remember we do not accept cash payments in school any more so all trips and activities as well as the children's school lunches and milk need to be paid via ParentPay. We will also use ParentPay to send information and letters home so please activate your account. If you need any help with this, please pop into the school office and we'll be happy to get you set up.
A couple of points to note -

  • Remember you do not need to ‘book’ any lunches, the children will do this each morning in class.
  • Milk – this needs to be pre-booked online after you have added credit to your child’s milk account, otherwise they will not get any milk.
  • Remember to keep checking the balance of your child’s school meals account as when a pupil orders a lunch it is charged to your account whether or not it has any credit. So please keep an eye on it and top it up when necessary to avoid it going into debt.
  • ParentPay is for paying all school activities and trips too.
  • It will also be used as a means of communication, hopefully saving us a lot of paper, so please complete the activation as soon as possible to ensure you receive updates & information.
  • You can find some guidelines to using your account on the 'Parent's Area' of our website

Thank you to all the families who took the time to attend our first ever 'Coffee, Cake & a Catch-up’ at Eddlewood Hall yesterday. It was great to see you all and we had really positive feedback on it. Safe to say this could become a regular feature in the Woodside diary! See our photos here.

Our class blogs are available to see on-line, instructions on accessing them are on the parents page.




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


Mrs Elaine Renwick
