Welcome to our website
On behalf of all at Woodhouse Primary School, may I offer you and your child (ren) a very warm welcome.
We hope that you will find the information contained on this website both helpful and informative. It is constantly being updated so do visit us again soon!
At Woodhouse, we believe in partnership between home and school. This aim is reflected in our school motto "Achieving Success Together". By working together, we can ensure that each child feels happy and secure, whilst having every opportunity to reach their own individual potential. In our school, every aspect of the curriculum is valued and explored in order to develop the children's knowledge and understanding of the world around them, providing them with the emotional and practical skills they need.
Visits from parents and prospective children are most welcome and should be arranged through the school administrator. Parents of reception age children are invited to an open afternoon in December. At this meeting, Year 6 pupils will provide a guided tour of the school. There is also an opportunity for an informal chat with staff, parents and governors.
Arrangements for pupils transferring to the school include the option of time in class before enrolment.
We believe Woodhouse Primary School is a school that the whole community can be proud of. We look forward to receiving your child(ren) into school.
