Our covered way:

This is the corridor outside our classroom doors. This is where you will wait in the morning and we will then come into the corridor to meet you.

This is also where you will be collected to go home at home time.


All children are expected to wear school uniform at Woodford.  The school colour is maroon and full details can be found under the following Parents tab Uniform

All items with school logos can be purchased at the local Schoolwear Centre near The Range on Billacombe Road, Plymstock or near Sainsburys on Mayflower Street in the City Centre.

Please note that all items of clothing should be clearly marked with the child’s name.

Parentkind - Preparing your child for school

You can help your child look forward to school by removing the fear of the unknown. If they already go to nursery or pre-school the move up to Primary School should be a bit easier, but in any case, knowing what to expect will help.
