We are all looking forward to our move to Woodgate in September 2021. New information will be added here about our classes and teachers to make sure you are ready for the move.
We have thought long and hard about the transition to the new school and how to make this as smooth as possible for our current children and for the new children joining us. As the children have had two disrupted years due Covid, along with the change in school location, we felt that our current children would benefit from remaining with their existing class teacher as they have already established a good relationship with the children, know the children very well and are best placed to support the children academically and emotionally going forward. This should also help with the integration of our new children.
As you will see, Miss Sanders is now our reception/year 1 class teacher- congratulations to her for completing her teaching qualification this year.
Mrs Bird and Mrs Ellis are really looking forward to working with our years 2 and 3 children and for additional bonus – they get Mrs West for one afternoon a week (and I am also really looking forward to working with them).
The year 4, 5 and 6 children will be in safe hands with Mrs Whaley and Mrs Corcoran who have taught ‘Superclass’ (years 3-6) over the last two years so have lots of experience of differentiating appropriately to meet the needs of the differing year groups. We will ensure the class has adequate teaching assistant support to meet the needs of class.

Transition - What's Happening?
We are working hard on making transition as easy as possible for children joining our school.
We are hoping to be able to have a chance to meet the children and have a meeting for parents (Covid restrictions allowing).
We will are sending out a transition booklet with photos of class teachers and information for children to help them when they start school in September. Please find these below:
We will keep you up-to-date with our current school newsletters.
We will also be contacting some school and parents if we feel we need any further information about your child. Please email us if you think there is anything you think we should know about you child.
We will continue the transition process into the Autumn term with a variety of activities to settle your child into life at Woodgate Primary. We intend to have parent meetings near the beginning of term.
We will let you know any new information as soon as we are able to.
Please do not hesitate to email us if you have any questions.
