Woodcote Primary School


Newsletter 19 September 2014

School Photos – On Tuesday 23rd September the photographer will be in school to take photographs of all the children. If you have pre-school children that you would like to include the photos please bring them to the school hall between 8.30am – 9am. Please be aware that the photographer is under time pressure to complete all school photographs by 11.30am and will therefore start on the school classes at 9am.

Please note that children in Maple and Willow class will have swimming first thing in the morning so may like to bring a brush or comb to be ready for their photos later that morning.

New Clubs – we have had a huge response to the new clubs being offered by many Woodcote Primary School staff. Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis although your child should not expect to join all the clubs as we would like to offer them to as many children as possible across the school.


Judo Club – this club restarts on Thursday 25th September. It runs from 8am – 8.45am in the school hall. If you would like more information please contact Iinkai Judo and Self Defence Club on 0118 988 5822 or email


Piano Lessons – please note that the piano teacher is changing her teaching day for next week only, from Wednesday to Thursday 25th September (9am-11.30). Please remember to bring in your piano books.


Returning to school – please be aware that once children are dismissed at the end of the day into the care of their parents or other adults, they should not be returning into the school to use the toilets or any other facilities. The school is expected to keep a register during the school day of all the pupils and staff, as part of the schools emergency evacuation procedure. In the event of a fire after 3.15pm we would expect only staff, After School Club members, children in after school clubs and any registered visitors to be on site. Staff will remind children to visit the toilet before they leave school at 3.15pm.

FOWPS AGM- Tuesday 23rd September 7.30pm in the annexe (Beech and Ash Classroom). All are welcome.


After School Club AGM – this will be held in the school hall at 6.30pm on Wednesday 15th October 2014. All are welcome.

Newsletters – over the next few months parents will start to receive this Weekly Newsletter by email. (Oak Class parents are already receiving it this way.) Ultimately we would expect to be sending it out to all parents along with any other letters that can be sent

electronically. There will always be a copy of the Newsletter to view in the Foyer. If a permission slip needs to be signed and returned, there will be copies available in the office for those who are unable to print out at home. Please let the office know if you have recently changed your email address.
