Homework Survey results - June 2023

Our Primary 7 children have been invited to take part in St. Andrew’s Hospice annual ‘Wear Yellow Sponsored Walk’ on Wednesday 7th June. This  is a fundraising event and will involve doing 1 lap around Strathclyde Park loch. We are asking our families and friends to help us raise money, so we are collecting donations through a Just Giving Page. If you are able to make a donation, you can do so by following the link below. All money raised will be used for the care and comfort of patients at the Hospice. Many thanks for all your support.

Entry Tickets will be on sale before the event - £3 for 1 adult or £5 for 2 adults. Child entry is free! Tickets should be purchased using the tear off slip that was sent home in school bags, you can also pay at the door on the night. We are having a Chocolate Tombola and a Bottle Tombola, so would be grateful for donations of chocolate and any sort of bottle, by the 5th June, thank you. We will be looking for lots of volunteers to help on the night, so even if you’re not on the PC and are able to help, even for half an hour on the night, drop us an email ( or post on the FaceBook page.

We have a very large selection of pre-loved items 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 boys trousers in smaller sizes (ages 4 up to 10 years) Please hand in any donations to the school office. Any other donations of clothing can be placed in our clothing bank in the car park behind the Sainsburys at 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. Lost property can be found at the stairwell doors at primary 1. Unclaimed lost property will be added to our pre-loved stock if not collected after one month.


  • 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 £2.05 and 29p. 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.

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
