Welcome To Woodsetts Primary School

jwWelcome to Woodsetts Primary School. We are part of the Woodsetts and Anston Brook Federation and together the schools provide an ambitious and thriving learning environment for our children. Our school motto “Reach for the Stars” drives our continued success.

Committed to each individual pupil, we seek to ensure their academic achievement and personal growth. We have created a vibrant learning environment where children can develop into reflective, independent learners. Working in partnership with parents and carers, we support our children to be ambitious, achieve their full potential and to make a positive contribution throughout their lives.

We hope you find our website both interesting and informative. If you would like to visit our school, we would be delighted to show you around.

Leave Of Absence During Term Time

The School Attendance Policy informs parents / carers about the rules when applying to take leave of absence during term time.  The policy is written in accordance with statutory regulations.  It is not an entitlement to take a holiday in term time.  No parent can demand leave of absence for the purpose of a family holiday by right.  A completed application form must be submitted to the Headteacher in advance of the period of absence.  It will only be granted if  "exceptional circumstances" exist. (An example of exceptional circumstance is an Armed Services family where the parent in the Armed Services is home on leave).  The maximum leave of absence which may be granted in any single academic year is 5 days. Unauthorised leave may be referred to the local authority.

School Meals Menu

A new menu is now in place from April 2015

We have introduced a banding system where children have a choice of two hot meals or a grab a bag sandwich.  This is to support the government's Universal Free School Meals (UFSM) to provide all children in Foundation Stage 2, year 1 & 2 with a free school meal. Please click HERE to view an information leaflet.

For KS2 children (years 3, 4, 5 & 6) a Primary School Meal from September costs £2.00 per day and £10.00 per weekPlease click on the image on the left to view the current menu.

Many thanks, Woodsetts Primary School

Dinner money should be handed to your child's CLASS TEACHER every MONDAY morning in a NAMED ENVELOPE.

Unfortunately we cannot issue change; all money will be carried over to the following week.
