WELCOME!

"Welcome to our thriving school set in the beautiful Woodchester valley. Here at Woodchester Endowed Primary School, we pride ourselves in creating a happy, safe environment and offer a rich, high quality curriculum. Integral to learning are our Christian values which encourage every child to reflect on the world around them and lead positive, fulfilling lives.

Our talented staff make learning fun and every day our children make us smile! We offer all our children the opportunity to achieve and grow in confidence through an exciting array of creative and sporting activities.

We are so lucky to be part of a supportive, vibrant community and I hope you will see from the website how much enjoyment our children have in school."

'E-SAFETY'

There is a very informative magazine for parents called Digital Parenting.  Please follow the link below to download the magazine. 

Digital Parenting Magazine

On the 23rd November, Willow Class will travel to Gloucestershire Police HQ to take part in the CLICK event.  This teaches children how to keep themselves safe in this increasingly digital world. 

This term, there was an informtion evening for parents which focused on Social Media.  One message that came across very strongly was it was not the technology that puts children at risk but the way it is use!  We hope to build on this in the future.  

Our Year 4 children watched a performance of ‘In the Net’.  This play was written especially for Year 4 children to inform and educate them about safe internet and social media use. 

23rd Nov 2018 - Our Y6 children will travel to Gloucestershire Constabulary Police HQ to watch 'Click'.  This is aimed at Y6 children and raises awareness around digital literacy and online resilience in a fun and friendly way.

 

 

PTA -

THANK YOU TO THE BIG LOTTERY FUND AWARDS FOR ALL SCHEME

Woodchester Endowed (C of E Aided) Primary School is celebrating, thanks to a grant from the Big Lottery Fund. The school has been given £9,990 of National Lottery funding to extend and renovate their outdoor Early Years Play Area. The area will have new fencing, bespoke sand and water play and replace some of the tarmac with artificial grass.

The project to improve the Outdoor Space at Woodchester Primary School started last year, when the children were asked to draw their ‘Inspirational playground designs’. These were combined with feedback from staff and parents to turn them into practical plans with the help of Different by Design, a bespoke playground design company.

Parents at the school have been busy fundraising to implement the designs and have so far raised over £19,000 to help improve the outdoor play areas. The funds include a grant of £2,000 from the Summerfield Trust to resurface the area beneath the trim trail and a similar amount from Midcounties Cooperative. Seys and Bridges Educational Foundation donated £600, and Tetbury-based business Uniwire, supplied fencing materials. The donations have enabled the school to purchase new table benches with games on the top, and improve the forest school area. Parents have also generously given their time and skills to build seating for the outdoor classroom, install fencing, create a pond and set in posts to raise a parachute in the outdoor classroom.

Staff and Parents are delighted to receive a grant from the Big Lottery Fund’s Awards for All scheme. An outdoor play area provides children with one of the best possible environments in which to learn.  This will be a great environment in which to spark their imagination and initiative.

Woodchester Endowed Primary School is home to a number of different community groups who use the premises regularly. These include Woodchester Playgroup; Woodchester 1st Brownies and Guides; Woodpeckers After School Club; Superstars Holiday sports clubs, Dancercise Exercise Classes, Sunday School and Local Church groups. The school site can be hired by members of the local community out of school hours.  The school was awarded ‘outstanding in all areas’ by Ofsted in 16/17.
