Starting school 2020

Welcome to Woodford


We would like to warmly welcome you and your child to our school. We hope this will be the start of a long and happy partnership over the next seven years of your child’s education with us here at Woodford and we are delighted to have you join our school family.


Due to the current situation we have been unable to hold our normal parents presentations or transition meetings. On these pages we have collected different information and resources to try to support transition into school.



We would normally invite you into school for our starting school presentation during the Summer term. Unfortunately we have not been able to do this or to invite children to visit the school and meet the staff.


As an alternative to this meeting we have turned our presentation into 3 videos, narrated by Miss Riggs, to provide you with some information you may find useful.

As we are currently not able to arrange transition visits with the children we thought it might help children to be able to watch story time and song time videos with the Foundation Stage staff to become familiar with us in some way, even if it's not yet in person. You can watch them on the transition page at the top of this page.

A Learning Journey


Here are some thing you can practise with your child on their journey preparing for school.
