We are very proud of you and thank you all for being such great ambassadors of our school.

Digital Parenting Magazine

Recently, Willow class attended the CLICK event. 

This is aimed at Y6 children and raises awareness around digital literacy and online resilience in a fun and friendly way.

Parents had an evening to learn more about 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.

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.

 

If you require a paper copy of any of the information contained on this website, the office will be able to provide it free of charge.
