Latest update from Woodhouse Primary Academy
Updated 20.7.2020 15:30
Woodhouse Primary Academy is now closed for the summer.
We have come up with detailed plans for the full opening of Woodhouse Primary Academy in September. We have completed a range of detailed risk assessments which can be viewed, alongside a letter explaining the plans for September on our Wider Opening page here. As always, these plans could be affected by changes in the local or national situation. If this is the case we will update you as soon as possible.
Woodhouse Primary Academy will be open for all children in the new Year 1 to Year 6 (and all years in Rainbow Room) from Thursday 3rd September 2020. School is closed for Staff Training on Tuesday 1st September and Wednesday 2nd September. All eligible children will be expected to attend school every day and we will do all we can to support families so their children can attend.
Children in Reception and Nursery will have two visits to school in small groups over the first full week (beginning 7th September) and will be beginning school full time (or 15 hours for most nursery children) from the week beginning 14th September. There is separate information and also a parent Q&A document for our new Reception and Nursery families which will be shared with you and on our website here.
Full term dates are visible on the website here and include a planned Inset day, when school will be closed to all children, on Monday 2nd November 2020.
Our committed staff have provided some optional activities over the summer which will help your child to prepare for September and their new class. If you wish for your child to access these on Goggle Classroom or on our Home Learning website, then please do so. Staff will not be marking these, or responding online during the summer – they have more than earned their break from school. Please also encourage your child to take a well-earned break from school over the summer – we all (teachers, children and parents) need a rest!
We have provided a Summer Food voucher for those families who have been receiving EdenRed vouchers for free school meals. These vouchers are shared with you in the usual way. Please take care, keep yourselves and your families safe - we look forward to a happy return to Woodhouse in September. Please remember: though we are all distant, you all remain a key part of our school family and community – together, we are Woodhouse.
