September 2021 Intake

Welcome Woolston Community Primary School New Starters 2021



You have received an offer of a place at Woolston Community Primary School for your child to start Reception in September 2021. Congratulations and welcome! We are very excited to meet you and your child.

Each year, we hold several events to help you and your family get to know us before the start of the school year in September but things are a little different this year. Normally, our Foundation Stage teachers would visit your child at their nursery before they come for their visits at school. Unfortunately, we still do not know if this will be possible in the summer term. We will still be in contact with the Nurseries and Early Year Providers so that any relevant information regarding your child can be passed on to us. We hope to meet you and your child face to face before the start of the new academic year - information regarding this will be sent out to you.

You might be wondering what you should do now, and what you can do to help your child get used to the idea of Reception. There are some great resources on the BBC website in preparation for school. Please click on the image that says BBC Programmes to be taken to these resources. There is also a really good information sheet on the BBC website as well with suggested activities.

School Uniform

At Woolston Community Primary School are proud of our school uniform and how smart our children look when they are wearing it.

Our uniform is grey trousers or shorts / skirt or pinafore dress, dark green sweatshirt / cardigan and white polo shirt.  Girls may wear green gingham dresses during the summer term / early autumn term. Children must wear smart, sensible black school shoes at all times other than PE lessons.   The wearing of jewellery, other than small studs / sleepers and watches, is not allowed.

Our PE kit is white t-shirt with or without Woolston Community Primary logo, green shorts, black pumps, spare underwear (in case of accidents), dark coloured track suit bottoms (optional item, for during the winter months).

It is essential that ALL items of clothing are clearly labelled with your child’s full name

Uniform items can be ordered directly from Cactus Clothing our uniform supplier. The link to their website is below. 

Cactus Clothing is our uniform supplier and they now have an online shop. Uniform can no longer be ordered through school. The link to their uniform shop is: https://www.cactus-clothing.co.uk/woolston-community-primary

What Does Your Child Need To Bring To School?

We provide the majority of the equipment that your child needs. We ask that your child brings into school;

  • A Woolston Community Primary School book bag (please attach a small keyring to make your child's book bag easily identifiable)
  • Their P.E. kit (clearly labelled with their name) in a small drawstring bag
  • A water bottle (clearly labelled with their name)

School Meals

All children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are currently entitled to a free school meal. We assume that all children wish to take up this entitlement unless you complete the “Opt Out” form. Our lunchtime arrangements are flexible. You can choose to send a packed lunch with your child or for your child to have a free meal from the school kitchen, on a daily basis.

Currently our Reception children are given a free piece of fruit for snack in the afternoon. At morning break the children are given the opportunity to buy snack from school. Snack is ordered on a Monday for the whole week. The children can choose from toast or crumpet with a drink of orange or apple juice. Each item costs 25p. For example if your child chooses toast and juice the cost is 50p per day which will be charged to their school meals account on a Monday for the whole week (£2.50). However, if they only choose one item for example just toast or just juice then the cost is 25p per day and £1.25 will be taken from their account on a Monday for the whole week. If you prefer you can send in a healthy snack from home for your child to have at morning break.

Free milk is also given to children in our Reception class until they reach the age of 5. Once your child is five then there is the option for all children in the school to have milk and this is paid for on a termly basis.

Assessment and Tapestry

We use the online learning journal, Tapestry to record your child's learning journey during their time in EYFS at Woolston Community Primary School.
