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.


We will be in contact with you within the next few weeks to give you some more information about starting school and will update this page with more information and resources as we progress through the term.



We would normally invite you into school for our starting school presentation during the Summer term. This is normally a presentation with Mrs Harvey (Headteacher) and Miss Riggs (Foundation stage lead), followed by a tour of Foundation Stage where children will be learning with the rest of the Foundation team and then, if you'd like, a tour of the rest of the school. We hope we might still be able to be able to do this towards the end of the Summer term.


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.

Transition and starting school - Starting school 2020



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.
