Woodcote Primary School


Newsletter 6 January 2012

Welcome back – to everyone, staff, children and parents to what we are sure will again be an exciting term.


Heads Termly Newsletter – This will be sent out next week with the weekly newsletter.


Cold and Wet Weather – Please make sure that your child has a warm waterproof coat, hat, gloves etc. with them each day as they do need them for break time and lunchtime.  These must have your child’s name in them so that they can be returned to them if they get lost.  We are quite willing to write your child’s name in for you if they bring their coat etc. to the school office.


Lost Property – Please ask in the school office next week if your child has lost something as all items in our lost property box will be disposed of next week.


Judo Lessons – These will start again next Thursday 12th January at the usual time of 8am.  Letters have been given out to those who took part in judo lessons last term but if you would like your child 

to start lessons this term there are letters in the school entrance hall giving full information.


Emergency School Closure – A reminder that in the event of bad weather any closure or late opening will be announced on the radio by 8.00am, earlier if possible (BBC Radio Oxford and Heart FM Oxfordshire) and will appear on their websites. We will also inform the Woodcote and Cabin Preschools.  School closures are also listed on the County website: and we will also notify parents of opening/closing on our school website:
