PARENTPAY ACCOUNTS: Thank you! All our ParentPay accounts are now fully activated. This is a massive achievement and your help with this is greatly appreciated. This means that we can communicate with all our families via email. Please continue to monitor your account to ensure it remains in credit for school meals and milk. You can set up an alert advising you of a low balance to avoid a debit balance.
The new school lunch menu started on Monday 23rd August. Please note the return of the yellow tray which is suitable for vegetarian/vegan diets. A cheese or tuna sandwich is also available daily. Please see the new menu here and discuss the options available with your child each morning so they know which tray to order in class. Remember if milk is required it should be ordered online via your ParentPay account and can be pre-booked up to two weeks in advance. Please always ensure you have sufficient credit on your ParentPay account to cover your child's school lunches.
As of August 2021 all Primary 1-4 children are entitled to a free school lunch. However if you are in receipt of certain benefits it is important that you still register with SLC for their School clothing and free school meals grant. All other school lunches are payable via your child's ParentPay account.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If your child currently has a place on the school bus and you move address you must reapply to SLC for a place on the bus. Until they confirm your place, your child cannot travel on the bus as they are not insured to do so.Can we please remind all parents that in line with SLC Guidelines, unfortunately we cannot offer our usual 'drop -in/open door policy' at the minute as we need to restrict visitors to the school. This includes dropping off forgotten lunches/snacks/water bottles so please ensure our children have everything they need when the arrive at school. Parents should only attend school in an emergency. We know this is not our usual Woodie way but if you have any queries or questions, please phone the school office. Also thank you to all our parents/carers for their support at 'dropping and going' at our gates to avoid any conjestion, for maintaining social distancing and for wearing a face mask. Please remember to arrive no more than 5 mins before your child's start/pick-up time (P1-3 8.45am-2.45pm and P4-7 9.00am-3.00pm). This ensures that we keep everyone safe, thank you.
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!
