Starting School in September 2024

We look forward to welcoming you!

We are so pleased that you are considering Woodcroft Primary School as your child’s school for September 2024.  Starting school can be an exciting but equally daunting time for both parents and children, which is why we always make every effort to make our transition programme as smooth as possible.

To book onto a school tour, please contact the school office on 023 92593939.


Part of the transition for your child involes the Year R Teacher speaking with your child’s current childcare setting, inviting you and your children into school to ‘stay and play’, meeting the staff and offering information sessions for parents/carers to find out more about the Year R routines and how the children will learn.  All of this usually happens before the summer holidays, so the children can become familiar with their new school.

Please have a look around our website to get an idea of some of the exciting and fun learning opportunities and unique experiences our pupils have access to.
