Welcome to Woodcote Primary School
Welcome to our school’s website, I hope that you enjoy looking through our pages and finding out a little bit more about our school. If you are in the area, you are more than welcome to come and have a look around so you can experience first-hand some of the exciting and creative learning that takes place at Woodcote.
We were visited by Ofsted in November 2022 and the report has been emailed to our parents and carers, the full report will be published on our website shortly.
We would like to thank all of our families for their support throughout the Coronavirus pandemic and it is lovely to be able to open our school doors again to parents, carers and visitors. If it does become necessary to implement any further restrictions or adapt the protocols in place in the future, we will let you know via email, text message and this website. Should it become necessary to revert to home learning once again, we will send information to support you. We will also continue to update the links to support your child's learning in the 'Home Learning' tab.
ClassDojo will continue to be used and we strong encourage all parents and carers to create a log in so that your child can access additional work, videos and links at home. You will also able to see the positive points that your child accumulates during their time at school. ClassDojo can be used to communicate directly with your child's teacher and your child can share their achievements and accomplishments whilst at home. We have loved seeing the messages, videos and work that your children have been sending in.
For any of our families who may need to self-isolate, we wish you well. If there is anything that we can do to help you as a school, please do let us know.
Stay safe and look after yourselves.
