Woodcote Primary School


Newsletter week ending 22nd April 2016

Ground Force Day – Saturday 7th May 10am-2pm. As Summer time approaches, the school would like to improve the school grounds with the help of as many parents as possible. It will involve some trimming, weeding, planting and clearing of paths. If you would be able to help please let the office know. There is a flier coming out to parents today via the classrooms. We would be very grateful for your support. The more the merrier!!


INSET days reminder – please note the 2 INSET days before the end of the summer term. Friday 27th May & Friday 1st July 2016 for staff training. School will be closed to pupil on these days.

‘Hairy Legs’ Fun  Run – please see the attached flier about the ‘Fun Run’ on Sunday 8th May.


Music lessons – after several enquiries about violin lessons, there is now a link that interested parents can access to enrol their children onto the Oxfordshire County Music Service. For more information about the lessons available please use this link –


Student Support Centre – the school has been approached by the Student Support Centre (a student tuition programme) to raise awareness of the service they can provide to children. Whilst the school does not endorse the requirement for any children to take up the service, we have agreed to distribute their information on Monday 25th April via the classrooms. The school will directly benefit from parents returning the reply slips, even if it is that you are not interested in their service. They will gift the school 30 free dictionaries if over 65 families return their reply slips and an additional 30 Thesauruses if more than half of families respond. Please look out for their envelopes on Monday. Thank you.


Sainsbury’s Active Kids – vouchers will be available in store from 27th January – 3rd May 2016. Please collect these for our school and bring them to the Foyer to post in the collection box or post them through our post box. Please do not staple them together. The more vouchers are collected, the more we can spend on additional resources for school. Over the years we have bought playground equipment, such as stilts and skipping ropes, and gym equipment too.
