Admissions for Reception and Nursery 2024

Welcome to Woodside Primary Academy, where our priority is the well-being and progress of every child.  We have worked hard to develop an atmosphere of trust, happiness, and achievement here at the school, to ensure that your child feels cared for and supported on their educational journey.  Ofsted recognise the excellent work in the areas above and have graded us as Outstanding in all areas of education (July 2023). 

Welcome to all the children and families who will start with us next September 2024. During the next few months, we will be contacting all new parents for information visits and play dates to meet their new teachers. 

Since our Ofsted Inspection, we have made significant efforts to enhance the range of engaging opportunities available to all students. We have successfully implemented a variety of exceptional afterschool clubs, including Spanish, Origami, Multi sports, Dance, Drumming, Music Technology, and more. Each term, children have the option to participate in two clubs of their choice. Additionally, we have established partnerships with external clubs such as Karate, all about Dance, and WO Sports, enabling us to offer extracurricular activities at affordable rates.
