Woodhouse Primary Academy is open to children in all our year groups, all children should attend school each and every day, unless they are unwell. If your child is unable to attend Woodhouse, please be sure to contact the school office by phone on 01214641769 or by email email@example.com to let us know the reason. You will be prompted for this if we do not hear from you.
If your child is not able to attend school due to a positive coronavirus test, then they are expected to continue their learning at home if they are well enough to do so. Our committed teaching staff provide a full range of learning opportunities and lessons for children at home, as described by our remote learning plan here. There is a wide bank of daily learning on our Google Classrooms or on our Home Learning website, where children can access the high standard of education we expect at Woodhouse each day. If you have any issues accessing this work, please contact by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call the school office. For all children, we continue to work digitally using Google classroom as our school learning platform for additional learning, home work and reading. All communication from Woodhouse comes out by email and is also placed on the school website. We have given out over 130 devices for children to access learning and we do also have a limited supply of Vodaphone data sim cards and BT broadband hotspot passwords, which can be used to enable children to access learning online. Please contact school if you need support with accessing remote education.
Where children are unable to attend due to a Covid19 infection, then Wonde vouchers will provided for children who are eligible for Free School Meals. Please note, this does not apply to Universal Infant Free School Meals (UIFSM) or Nursery. If for any reason you need any additional support of any sort (for example food parcels, uniform assistance etc.) then please do contact school and we will do all we can to help. We can and will support any family in need - you just need to let us know. We have access to support in school, help in the local community and also through Birmingham City Council agencies. Please rest assured that any requests will be handled sensitively and discretely - you know that we will look after you and your family without judgement. If you don't let us know - we cannot help.
If any personal details, such as mobile phone numbers, email addresses or home addresses change, please be sure to communicate this to school as soon as possible by contacting the office or emailing email@example.com. You can also do this through our MyChildAtSchool (MCAS) app, further details of which can be found here.
